When a prank goes wrong onboard an ocean liner Harvey ends up overboard and nearly drowns. Fortunately he’s picked up by a fishing boat just heading out for the season. He tries to bribe the crew into returning early to collect a reward but none of them believe him. Stranded on the boat he must adapt to the ways of the fishermen and learn more about the real world.
Plot: Harvey, the arrogant and spoiled son of an indulgent absentee-father, falls overboard from a transatlantic steamship and is rescued by a fishing vessel on the Grand Banks. Harvey fails to persuade them to take him ashore, nor convince the crew of his wealth. The captain offers him a low-paid job, until they return to port, as part of the crew that turns him into a mature, considerate young man.

Being a boy, being spoiled, finding truth…quite the tale
Captains Courageous (1937)

You might think this movie will come off as old-fashioned and stale, a old Kipling yarn filmed in the 1930s in black and white. Well don’t pre-judge this! It’s really good. Fast, energetic, touching, and filled with good acting and great filming. It even has a moral tale that doesn’t smack you as sentimental, but is a good reminder of what counts in life.

The main character is a rich boy who obviously needs to learn some lessons in humility and honor. And he’s played with real perfection by the young English actor Freddie Bartholomew who had a five year heyday of great roles and great performances with classic adventure stories told on film. And there are parallels here of bigger tales like “Kidnapped” (1938) and “David Copperfield” (1935), with a child intersecting the world of adults and its perils.

His adult friend is the bigger star, Spencer Tracy, who does a good job though I’ve never quite loved his style of acting. Here he plays a Portuguese sailor with a half an accent and it’s the one problem in the film. Next to him in a big role is Lionel Barrymore, who recognizably makes for a quirky captain of the fishing boat. He’s great. And so are the other side characters, including a whole slew of big names from the time (John Carradine and Mickey Rooney are probably most famous now).

Much of the film is a low key adventure film. It’s aimed at kids the way “The Wizard of Oz” is aimed at kids—meaning it’s great for adults, too, and there are a few things snuck in to keep older viewers attuned. Director Victor Fleming went on to direct “Oz” and much of “Gone with the Wind” in two years, and you can feel his Hollywood expertise in every scene here. This is not a stiff 1930s movie if your head is in that mode. Fleming (with photographer great Harold Rosson, who shot “Oz” and a hundred others) makes it vivid and wondrous. The mix of studio shots and authentic sea footage (made with a second film crew in the North Atlantic) is brilliantly handled—no back projection goofs here.

I really liked this movie. It’s straight up filmic storytelling. No distractions, no bumbling. Give it a go and be surprised.

A lad learns lessons of life.
A superb adventure saga based on the Rudyard Kipling story. Very good cast and the appearance of flawless direction by Victor Fleming. A young wealthy, spoiled brat named Harvey(Freddie Bartholomew)falls from a luxury liner and is rescued by a salty sailor, Manuel(Spenser Tracy). Captain Disko(Lionel Barrymore)refuses to stop fishing to turn his boat around to take the lad to shore. Young Harvey will reluctantly lean that the world is not his for the asking and the fishing crew succeeds in helping Manuel teach the boy about the rewards of hard work and true friendships. A touching relationship develops and the well-to-do Harvey becomes more genuine and thoughtful for it. Bartholomew and Tracy are outstanding. Also in the talent laden cast: Melvyn Douglas, John Carradine, Charley Grapewine and Mickey Rooney. This on-screen novel is wonderful family fare and seems tireless.
