Movie Info

Stubborn Capt. Christopher Jones (Spencer Tracy) pilots the historically famous Mayflower on its maiden voyage across the storm-swept Atlantic. Thankfully, a resourceful carpenter (Van Johnson) keeps the weather damage in check. Also among the passengers is Dorothy (Gene Tierney), the wife of the religiously zealous leader of the pilgrims. Jones finds himself drawn to Dorothy, despite her unattainable status. Soon a rivalry between his unsavory crew and the prim and proper pilgrims emerges.

    Serviceable historical drama, done Hollywood style, that features Spencer Tracy as the hard-as-nails captain of the Mayflower charged with delivering a cargo of deluded, delusional (and doomed) undesirables (the Pilgrims!) across the sea. Maybe some liberties are taken with the plot, but what matter as long as our forefathers make it to forge a destiny for us all? Beyond the captain, notable on the voyage are Gene Tierney, Leo Dunn, Lloyd Bridges and Van Johnson. What really flies are the ship-in-distress scenes for which it won an Academy award. Not great, but not bad either.

    If you're a student of American history this one will certainly make you cringe. Hollywood's fact altering melodrama casts Spencer Tracy as the captain of the Mayflower who, rather reluctantly, is charged with delivering pilgrims to the new world. With a shipload of recognizable faces that include Gene Tierney, Lloyd Bridges and Van Johnson you'd expect this historical epic to be a lauded piece of film history. It is not. There is enough deceit, betrayal and adultery here to rival most soap operas. Tracy's character is so one dimensional, so unlikeable, that the H.M.S. Bounty's Captain Bligh looks rather charming in comparison. Watch this if you must but don't come crying to me when the credits roll. You've been warned!
