Editorial Reviews

An epic historical adventure telling the story of the famous explorer Christopher Columbus and his quest to discover America. Journeying first to Spain, Columbus seeks financial backing for his expedition to the West, and after six years, he is finally able to go. As he sets off in search of new land, his crew gradually become despondent and threatens a mutiny. Eventually they arrive on land and claim it for Spain. For now, Columbus is a hero, but how will his relationship with Spain conclude?

VCI Entertainment and The Rank Collection presents "CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS" (1949) (99 min/Color) -- Starring: Fredric March, Florence Eldridge, Francis L. Sullivan, Linden Travers, Kathleen Ryan, Derek Bond, James Robertson Justice, Felix Aylmer, Nora Swinburne, Edward Rigby, Francis Lister, Niall Mac Ginnis, Abraham Sofaer, Richard Aherne, Dennis Vance

Directed by: David MacDonald

The British Invasion has struck again - VCI has restored and released another film.

The plot and story line is bent on discovering the New World, with Fredric March as Christopher Columbus gives an outstanding performance. March asking for funds for his fleet, with his real life wife Florence Eldridge, cast as Queen Isabella. The retelling of the great adventure with the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria as co-stars.

There are slow parts within, but for the most part a good telling of his adventure of 1492, landing and christening the new land as San Salvador.

Fredric March's closing line before the end credits start rolling - "People will remember me long after Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand are long forgotten"

Good musical score by Arthur Bliss, performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Muiir Mathieson. The soundtrack by Bliss lends classical passages of pure enjoyment
