"Captains Courageous" is a whale of an adventure. The story was originally a novel by Rudyard Kipling. Director Victor Fleming, best known for his work on "The Wizard of Oz" and "Gone With The Wind", made an epic movie. He is helped out enormously by an Academy Award performance by Spencer Tracy. The rest of the cast should have earned awards as well. Special mention should go to Freddie Bartholomew who plays a boy lost at sea from a shipwreck. Mickey Rooney plays a great seaman at a young age. Not to be forgotten is the great cinematography by Harold Rossom. He brings out the beauty and the dangers of the sea. Visually the movie is stunning. You really feel like your on the fishing boat at the mercy of the sea. Although the movie was released in 1937, it still brings you out to a wonderful sea adventure 77 years after the release date. I really hope you watch the movie and write your reaction to it here on the KCLS web site. I will be watching for your thoughts on the movie.

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 Courageous go on to be a series it was so good.

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 of admission to any theater. A++ movie!!!!

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 Wrath", and Mickey Rooney... The kid, Harvey, was (obviously) unlikeable as an annoying spoiled brat, (I cheered when Barrymore belted him), but I still disliked him at film's end. A fun adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's story from the terrific Victor Fleming, though, regardless.
