Description
Producer-director John Ford once again demonstrates his successful formula for rambunctious, combative comedy and romance in this action-packed John Wayne classic. Life on a South Pacific island for two ex-Navy buddies (John Wayne and Lee Marvin) is just about perfect - they spend most of their time in Donovan's Reef, the local saloon where they brawl and feud and somehow manage to stave off the sameness of tropical living. Then, into this mayhem arrives Elizabeth Allen, a straight-laced Bostonian in search of her father.

              Comments about this product:

              Good video format, even in a blue-ray player. It's hard to imagine that Maui was that beautiful, when this movie was made. My wife actually saw the house, when she went to Maui. She says it's at the end, or near the end of the Hana Hwy. However, it appears that there are incomplete scenes in the movie.

                      This movie was one of my Dad's favorites. We would watch it all the time when it would come on the tv. They didn't have VHS or DVD's so when he'd see it was going to be on, he'd make the popcorn and we would watch it together as a family. I bought 3 copies. One for me, and one for each of my 2 brothers. They are going to love it! Beautiful memories!!!

                        I've seen this a dozen times and still laugh in all the right places. Just Dorothy Lamour singing Silent Night is worth the price of admission. Still, it also makes a fine statement about race and family. One of my favorites.

                              I've loved this movie since I was in high school. Now I plan on showing it to my family around Christmas time. Another good one from John Ford and John Wayne.

                                              It shows the funnier side to some of the actors, who usually are in more serious roles.
