Description
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:

      Read the review by Crawfordville, FL. This a good family movie. Spencer Tracy gave a great performance as the fisherman that taught the boy values.

      Freddie Bartholomew is my favorite boy actor. He gives his fellow students and teachers a bad time at a boy's boarding school. His father, Melvyn Douglas, is a busy business tycoon. Freddie uses his father's position to gain his way. He is a nasty boy, liked by none.

      Melvyn gets the lowdown from the Dean; he is expelled. So, Melvyn must take time for the boy. On an ocean-liner, Freddie falls off and is picked up.

      The captain of the fishing vessel is Lionel Barrymore. His son is Mickey Rooney as cabin boy and general helper, learning Lionel's trade.

      Freddie learned alot from his surrogate father, Spencer. Now, Melvyn learns his boy is found. He must earn the boy's respect.

      This is a great movie. This is also a man's movie on how to be a father.

        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'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.
