Movie Info

An old Cuban fisherman (Spencer Tracy) has not caught anything in 84 days. Despite the devotion of the young boy (Felipe Pazos) who brings him coffee and food, the fisherman fears he has become perpetually unlucky. On his 85th day of fishing, the old man catches a small fish and decides to keep fishing. When one of his multiple fishing lines hooks a large marlin, he decides to not return to shore until he reels in the fish. For two days and nights, the man sits alone, waiting to redeem himself.

    Unfortunately one of Spencer Tracy's worst. I no longer believe in unfilmable books but this one is a tough one to adapt and Sturges and Tracy can't pull it off.

    Great Classic Movie, a little bit slow and Narrated but nice. Not for people who are used to rush rush Movies. I think this Movie is based upon a Book, not sure though.
