Plot Sypnosis:


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 delivered this compelling, lyrical look at men at sea that O’Neill considered his favorite of all his filmed works.

Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, The Long Voyage Home is a journey to remember.

Starring: John Wayne, Thomas Mitchell, Ian Hunter, Ward Bond, Barry Fitzgerald.
