They don’t make movies like this anymore. Wow!
Nevermind the state book, this should be the Official Massachusetts’ Movie.

Will, John and Paul,
Thanks for visiting and commenting.
Haven’t seen this in years so looking forward to renting it soon.
Just watched Captains Courageous over the weekend. That’s another great maritime movie! Taught a few lessons to my 5 year old too! ;-)
This film remains one of my all time favorites. At the impressionable age of 7 this was the first film that that I saw in movie theatre. My father brought me to the River Theatre in Guerneville, California during our summer vacation along the Russian River, August 1957. Dad had read us an abridged novel as a bedtime story the previous year. Part of what makes this film good is that John Huston chose to cast actors with expressive faces to great affect helping to give the film a worldly sense of realism. The life of sail placed sailors from all the world together.
Great film. The special effects were a bit primitive but it was over 50 years ago. Much of it was filmed in and around the small Irish seaport of Youghal in County Cork – about 15 miles from where I live. The ship’s carpenter was played by the Dublin actor Noel Purcell.
amen! this is one of my all-time favorites. good scene too.
