Captains Courageous DVD

As Great As "Mutiny On The Bounty"

The fishing schooner We're Here has just pulled up a different kind of fish: rich, 10-year-old Harvey Cheyne, who tumbled off the side of a sleek ocean liner. Harvey will have to wait months before the We're Here returns to harbor, months that will transform him from a spoiled whiner into an honorable young man - all because of the life lessons he learns from Manuel, the humble fisherman who befriends him.

From Rudyard Kipling's classic, Captains Courageous thrills with its seagoing action, grand scale and all-star cast. But what gives it full-masted magnificence is the chemistry between Freddie Bartholomew (Harvey) and Spencer Tracy (Manuel). Tracy won his first Best Actor Academy Award for his towering portrait of the father we all wish for: virile, patient, wise and protective. Set sail for cinema glory.

    Comments about this product:

    I had not seen this movie since I was about 8 years old. The early parts, rich kid at home and at boarding school, are a bit stilted. But once he falls into the ocean and gets picked up by a fishing boat, the characters are well developed and engaging. The story is timeless -- spoiled brat gets a chance to grow up fast and develops some real attachments to people who really care about him.

        Comments about this product:

        Fantastic B-roll of Gloucester fishing schooner racing -- legendary fast sailing vessels like 'Bluenose' and 'Colombia,' blasting through the cold North Atlantic waters under full canvas. A compelling storyline with Spencer Tracy in the unusual role of tough-but-kind Portuguese fisherman speaking broken English.

              Comments about this product:

              I saw this movie for the first time just a few years ago and was greatly taken by it. I've always liked Spencer Tracy, but this was a side to him I'd never seen. The climax totally took me by surprise and I was moved to tears (and most of the time, still am!). I plan to read the book to see how it was adapted to the silver screen. It has a wonderful cast and is a joy to watch from beginning to end.

                  The rich boy becomes a man is secondary to Tracy's acting. This is a movie to watch very often. I never tire of the movie. Northwest Passage also shows Tracy at his best

                          Great all star cast from the good old days of black and white film! Good life lesson about a spoiled, over indulged young boy who grows up under the guidance of Manuel(Spencer Tracy), a hand line fisherman from Portugal on the Grand Banks schooner,"We're Here".
                          He learns the value of hard work and being of good character. no matter the circumstances. Spencer Tracy's roll as Manuel, won him his first Best Actor Academy Award in 1937.

                                I have seen this movie several times and purchased for my daughter and husband to do my bit to pass on values that have diminished so much in our society. I've been collecting essentials to give to them to share with their children as they will need all the help they can get in the years ahead.
