Captains Courageous




director: Victor Fleming, DVD

   Pampered Harvey Cheyne (Freddie Bartholomew) has his butler bring him breakfast in bed to impress visiting schoolmates. Later, as the boys travel back to their exclusive private school in the Cheyne's chauffeur‐driven limou‐ sine, Harvey attempts bribery and other ploys to get his way with his classmates. Harvey finds himself eventual‐ ly shunned by them and rebels against the school's discipline. When the headmaster informs Mr. Cheyne that his son has been suspended for the remainder of the term, the mogul realizes that the boy needs clos‐ er attention and guidance. Cheyne decides to take his son with him on a business trip to Europe. En route, Harvey falls overboard from a transatlantic steamship and is rescued by Manuel (Spencer Tracy) and taken aboard the fishing vessel. Harvey fails to persuade the captain to take him ashore, nor convince the crew of his wealth. However, the captain of the vessel, the We're Here, Disko Troop (Lionel Barrymore), offers him a low‐paid job as part of the crew until they return to port months later. With no other choice, Harvey accepts. He is befriended by Captain Troop's son, Dan (Mickey Rooney), and begins to learn the ways of work‐ ing at sea. The story that ensues, especially the bond between Harvey and Manuel, is very touching. Take out your handkerchief!
