Summary
  • In one of his favorite roles, screen legend Gregory Peck plays the valiant Napoleonic Era naval hero in this swashbuckling saga adapted for the screen by Hornblower's creator C.S. Forester. True to the famed source novels, Hornblower outthinks his rivals to outfight them. He's unflinching under fire, modest in victory -- and more than a little at sea romantically with Lady Barbara Wellesley (Virginia Mayo). Director Raoul Walsh (White Heat, High Sierra) guides the broadside for broadside action with flourishes befitting sea warfare's most exciting era. Two fully rigged and three nearly complete ships -- from a 38 gun frigate to a 100 gun command ship -- are used in the film. Fire when ready, mates! - Container
  • Salty saga of the bravest skipper ever to sail the seas- Captain Horatio Hornblower. The English Captain sailed during the Napoleonic era, and out thought, outmaneuvered and outfought his rivals, but was more than a little at sea when faced with a beautiful woman!
