2. Captains Courageous


I've seen that, but don't appear to have put it on a list.  Should be in the 8-10 range for me.

It's kind of a nostalgia pick for me. I mean, Spencer Tracy's character is named Manuel Fidello. That's a potential sticking point, for sure. I've been putting off revisiting for a while now, relying on the old "I need to read the book first" excuse. But the book is already on my shelf, so it just may happen one day.

I see a viewing of Wee Willy Winkie in your future.

Indeed. I'll be going through the whole Ford at Fox set, if I ever can catch up on Far East films.

As the world's biggest Cabin Boy fan, it's a film I certainly related to.  Tracy was pretty great, even with the outrageous accent.

Paper Balloons was already there.  I almost added Trade Tattoo inititally, thinking you might vote for it, but I got lazy.
