VERY GOOD 1937 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer adventure film, based on the 1897 novel of the same name by Rudyard Kipling. It's a coming-of-age classic with exciting action sequences. Harvey Cheyne (played by Freddie Bartholomew) is an interesting…

Although definitely Hollywood schmaltz at times, this is actually one of the most character-driven adventures out there. Both Freddie Bartholomew and, especially, Spencer Tracy are right on target, with a strong supporting cast. One of my…

A great family film!! Spencer Tracy and Freddie Bartholomew are terrific together. We all need to be trained at one time or another, and here Spencer Tracy teaches Freddie to be both a man and a seaman. I wanted to see Captains…

Great cast. Spencer Tracy was really endearing, but the broken English was awful, and a little irritating. Lionel Barrymore is a favorite of mine; John Carradine seems to pop up in so many old films; Charley Grapewin of "The Grapes of…

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. Well worth the price…
