The merchant ship Glencairn rolls and shivers in the black North Atlantic. On board, her anxious crewmen search the sky for German planes. And hope they’ll survive The Long Voyage Home. Director John Ford and screenwriter Dudley Nichols adapted four Eugene O’Neill one-acts into this compelling, lyrical look at men at sea that O’Neill considered his favorite of all his filmed works. As his sailors, Ford cast members of his so-called “Stock Company:” Thomas Mitchell, Barry Fitzgerald, Arthur Shields, Ward Bond, John Qualen and the star of the previous year’s Stagecoach, John Wayne. As sunny, sweet-natured Ole Olsen, Wayne does winning work in an atypical role. Nominated for six Academy Awards?* incuding Best Picture, The Long Voyage Home is a journey to remember. Come aboard!
