Synopsis

In this classic adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's novel, a spoiled rich kid comes of age after spending three months at sea aboard a fishing schooner. While traveling to Europe, young Harvey Cheyne falls off a cruise ship. He's saved by Manuel, a Portuguese fisherman, who takes the boy aboard his schooner. Manuel and the other members of the crew teach the boy all about life at sea and, in the process, Harvey comes to care very deeply for the experienced fisherman. Before the boy is reunited with his father again, he must learn to get over a devastating tragedy which has taken place during the journey.

Description

Perfect family entertainment in the classic Hollywood style. In this Kipling story, the spoiled son of a shipping magnate (Bartholomew) falls overboard from a luxury liner and is picked up by a Nantucket fishing schooner captained by the Oscar-winning Tracy. Forced to earn his keep, the boy's extended voyage and warm relationship with the captain show him what's important in life. Remade for television in 1977 and 1996. A colorized version is available.

Notes

Remade for American television in 1977. Additional cast: Oscar O'Shea (Cushman); Donald Briggs (Tyler); Sam McDaniels (Doc); and Billie Burrud (Charles). The main character, Harvey, is a 19-year-old boy in Rudyard Kipling's original novel. In the movie, he's changed to a 12-year-old. Songs include: "Ooh, What a Terrible Man," "Blow a Man Down," and "What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor?"
