Directed by Raoul Walsh. Gregory Peck, Virginia Mayo, Robert Beatty, Terence Morgan, Stanley Baker, Christopher Lee. Salty saga of the bravest skipper ever to sail the seas- Captain Horatio Hornblower. The English Captain sailed during the Napoleanic Era, and outthought, outmanouvered and outfought his rivals, but was more than a little at sea when faced with a beautiful woman! Based on the Hornblower books by C.S. Forester.
