In 1620, a group of religious outcasts boarded the Mayflower in England and set sail for the New World, where they founded a tiny wilderness outpost that was the genesis for what would become the United States of America. This is their thrilling story, atale of hardship and devotion, of storms, hunger and disease faced and defied. Screen great Spencer Tracy portrays the Mayflowers skipper, whose clenched heart is opened by his love for a gentle passenger (Gene Tierney) and the unfaltering courage of thepilgrims. Clarence Browns forthright direction, Miklos Rozsas hymn-tinged score and Academy Award-winning* special effects that thrust the viewer into twisting, towering seas await all who experience this memorable Plymouth Adventure.ont color="blue"& **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
