Movie Info

John Ford welded four of Eugene O'Neill's one-act plays about the sea, Bound East for Cardiff, The Long Voyage Home, The Zone, and Moon of the Caribees, into this melancholy film about wayfaring seamen, changing the setting from the turn of the century to WWII. This was O'Neill's favorite of the films based on his work, and he watched it often enough to eventually wear out his print. After a night of revelry in the West Indies, the crew of the SS Glencairn return to the tramp steamer and set

It's not the most focused and sustained movie, but the solid acting and elegant direction elevate this to another level. What could have been a routine melodrama ends up being quite a classy production.

An eerily beautiful wartime film.

Less a plot-driven movie than a meandering look at the nomadic men who make their lives on the high seas for various reasons.

Shot by master cinematographer Gregg Toland, this is one of John Ford's most visually expressive film, one that also features the young John Wayne in a strong performance

Features beautiful cinematography by Gregg Toland, no-frills direction by [John] Ford, and a great cast.

Lesser John Ford, but still a haunting production.

Audience Reviews for The Long Voyage Home

I really love this movie for being so completely unique and moody. The cinematography is absolutely breathtaking and the way John Ford manipulates the camera is completely revolutionary. This is from what I can tell one of the first anti-war messages for WWII, it's very direct and not overdone or sappy. This has great characters, an ensemble drama that should never be forgotten.

Dreadfully dull tale featuring a very young John Wayne talking about probably the most boring cross Atlantic trip ever taken. Someone is a German spy on board and the audience doesn't care.

Story of a mixed bunch a merchant sailors. It's funny to hear John Wayne play a Swede. His accent is almost as bad as Jamie Lee Curtis's one in Trading Places, and that was on purpose. Thomas Mitchell is a character as always.
