Editorial Reviews

Aboard the freighter Glencairn, the lives of the crew are lived out in fear, loneliness, suspicion and cameraderie. The men smuggle drink and women aboard, fight with each other, spy on each other, comfort each other as death approaches, and rescue each other from danger.

If this is the movie I think it is (in how many movies did Johh Wayne have a Swedish accent?), it wasn't but a few years ago when I got a chance to see it from beginning to end as an adult.
When I think of this movie, there is one scene that stands out from all the rest; and it is the haunting musical score that caused this. The scene, as I said, is quite simple. We see nothing but the ship itself leaving a dock in the harbor at night. And then the music - "Those Harbor Lights" - begins in what strikes me as a bitter-sweet tone - building gradually during its short duration in such a fashion that it left me feeling almost empty, desperate, hopeless, helpless - for want of better adjectives. I had heard that tune many times over the years - but never as so hauntingly and piercingly as it was performed in that movie - and without words, too! It turned out to be one of those tunes that - once it entered my head - would bounce around and around - taking me days to finally purge it from my system.
Not too many movie scenes have affected me this way.
I highly recommend this movie for this scene alone. To me it is a different type of John Ford movie, but with top-notch acting, including Thomas Mitchell, Barry Fitzgerald, Barry's brother Arthur Shields, and John Wayne (and with a Swedish accent in the bargain!). A real joy to watch.
Enjoy!

The Long Voyage Home is yet another film featuring John Wayne and director John Ford, and though it may be very different from the other movies the duo made, it is as good, if not better, than some of their other collaborations. In the early years of WWII, the SS Glencairn, a freighter in the Atlantic, receives a shipment of ammunition to transport to England from the West Indies. The ship must then sail through the dangerous waters of the Atlantic, hoping to not run into German subs. This simple plot is very much secondary to the real storyline, the lives of the crew of the Glencairn. Over the course of the film, the viewer comes to know all of the crew pretty well through four separate stories from writer Eugene O'Neil; a party with local girls on the boat before setting sail, the accidental death of a crewman during a storm, a possible German spy posing as one of the crew, and the efforts of the crew to get one of their own on a boat home after the Glencairn docks. Don't go into this movie expecting action, it is a character driven movie with many great scenes of dialogue that lets the cast do their thing. It might not be your typical John Ford and John Wayne teaming, but The Long Voyage Home is a worthy addition to any fans of the director/star combo.

While John Wayne gets top billing, he really has a somewhat smaller supporting part. Wayne plays Ole Olsen, a Swedish sailor trying to save money to get back home to Stockholm. The Duke pulls off a good Swedish accent, and does an excellent turn overall in his supporting part. The star of the movie is Thomas Mitchell as Aloysius Driscoll, "Drisk" to the crew, a veteran Irish crewman who stands as the crew's leader through the movie.

Wonderful work by John Ford and his team, who stitched together some Eugene O'Neill playlets about the merchant marine into the only film of his own work the writer could stand to watch. The real star here is Thomas Mitchell, the Duke is just a supporting player, and Mitchell gives the best performance of his great career. The moment in which Mitchell realizes that he is delving into a fellow shipmate's sad private life under the mistaken impression that the man is a spy has rarely been equalled in the American movies for emotional power. The film doesn't get mentioned enough in the litany of Ford's great movies but he never surpassed it, in my view.

I've just recieved my DVD copy of John Ford's,forgotten masterpiece,"The Long Voyage Home",from 4 short playlets by the noted Irish author Eugene O'Neil,adapted by Dudley Nichols,with a cast filled with "The John Ford Stock Company",John Wayne,Thomas Mitchell,Ward Bond,John Qualen,Joe Sawyer, Mildred Natick(her first film),Barry Fitzgerald,Arthur Shields,and (non Ford stock member) Ian Hunter,in perhaps his greatest role(aside from Frank Borzage's "Stange Cargo",with Gable,Crawford,and Lorre.Another film in which much of the action takes place at sea)as "Smitty",a tormented Englishmen.

This is a story of a merchant marine ship,and its mixed nationality crew, at sea,carrying a cargo of munitions,during WW2.Some of the crew,especially a young John Wayne,with a Swedish accent(!)are eager to get home and stay as from the sea as possible!NOT ALL of the crew makes it back home.

Before this DVD viewing I've seen this film at least 20 times(more like 40!),and my heart is tugged EVERYTIME,in the same places,even though I KNOW what is about to happen.A great film,director,a great director of Photography(Greg Toland-Citizen Kane),a great musical score by Richard Hageman,a Fantastic motion picture event.JOHN FORD AT HIS BEST AND YOU CAN'T GET ANY BETTER!!-----THe DVD transfer is very good!
