The sun never sets on his world of adventure.
Academy Award winner Gregory Peck stars with Virginia Mayo in a swashbuckling epic set on the high seas, the story of Captain Horatio Hornblower.
In 1807, English Captain Horatio Hornblower (Peck - To Kill a Mockingbird, Cape Fear) sails to the Pacific on a perilous mission in England's war with Spain. But when he arrives on the west coast of Nicaragua, he learns that England and Spain are now allies fighting the French. He rescues a beautiful young Englishwoman (Mayo), with whom he falls in love as he nurses her back to health - only to learn she is already betrothed. Then, sailing back to England, Hornblower is waylaid by a much larger French force. Taken prisoner, Hornblower stages a heroic escape from the gallows.
Based on the classic novel by C.S. Forester.

This is a great family adventure film with Peck as the honest sea captain . It is based on the navel novels of C S FORESTER with Peck winning all the sea battles and winnning the fair maiden as well. Although not in the same class as to KILL A MOCKING BIRD and now a little dated in parts it is well worth viewing and is a film I have watched many times.
There are lots of action sequences all well done but James Robertson Justice as one of the featured crew is quite painful at timesl.
Best watched as a family film cheering on the goodies and booing the baddies.
