Audience Reviews for The World in His Arms


Starts well then sputters out and becomes hokey and arch.

Super Reviewer

Hokey but enjoyable adventure romance. Gregory Peck always adds a little class to any picture he is in. Ann Blyth overacts. Overall decent. Nice production values, exciting settings.
