Captain Horatio Hornblower (1951)

B

Synopsis

Legendary Captain Horatio Hornblower leads his crew of British seamen on missions to thwart the French armadas.

Review

Really good. Entertaining. Good romantic elements. Great humor like the constant coughing and the little bets that the seamen make. Like that Horatio has the cute little boy. Good story, good cast. At least half the movie involves large and numerous explosions caused from hitting each other's ships with cannons; sometimes a little hard to tell which ship is getting hit.
