Editorial Reviews

In 1620, a group of religious outcasts boarded the Mayflower in England and set sail for the New World, where they founded a tiny wilderness outpost that was the genesis for what would become the United States of America. This is their thrilling story, a tale of hardship and devotion, of storms, hunger and disease faced and defied. Screen great Spencer Tracy portrays the Mayflower's skipper, whose clenched heart is opened by his love for a gentle passenger (Gene Tierney) and the unfaltering courage of the pilgrims.
Clarence Brown's forthright direction, Miklos Rozsa's hymn-tinged score and Academy Award(r)-winning* special effects that thrust the viewer into twisting, towering seas await all who experience this memorable Plymouth Adventure.

I enjoyed "Plymouth Adventure" very much although it is a flawed film. Something is missing. We learn very little about the persecution of the Pilgrims and their beliefs except that they pray "standing upwards" and are very clean. They even wash with the ship's limited drinking water which causes consternation among crew members. It was especially difficult for me to believe that the wife (Gene Tierney) of Pilgrim leader, William Bradford (Leo Genn) would prefer the ship's bloated, craggy, bitter, and alcoholic captain (Spencer Tracy) over her good-looking and articulate husband. The urbane and darkly handsome Leo Genn became well-known as a fine British film and stage actor with the "black velvet voice" and had already received critical acclaim for his excellent acting (and wit) in "Quo Vadis" (1951) and "Henry V" (1944). Bradford is portrayed as a responsible man who is indifferent to his wife and her beauty but not so oblivious to his wife's longing glances at the captain. I doubt that audiences of 1952 would be so critical; this film still holds up well and the special effects are good. It is interesting that Gene Tierney and Leo Genn would go on to star as a married couple in the British film "A Personal Affair" (1953). Final note: Why is this video so expensive?!!

This is a great movie! It has the drama of an important historical event, with shades of an illicite affair between the captian of the Mayflower and the wife of a Pilgrim leader. However, it is all done with subtle glances. The storm scene is also very exciting. The signing of the Mayflower Compact is utterly dramatic! There are a few historical liberties, but over all, it is a good movie! In fact, it won Best Picture for 1952.

"Plymouth Adventure" is just about the only Pilgrim movie I can think of (I'm not counting the various "Scarlet Letter"s and Salem Witch movies--those are about Puritans already settled in the New Land, not the Pilgrims just coming over). It's not really a bad movie, but it's not really a good one either. Stellar cast: Spencer Tracy as Capt Jones, not really into the Pilgrims' scene, but just doing his job; Leo Genn as William Bradford, intent on leading his followers to religious freedom; Gene Tierney as his wife, devoted to her husband but feeling stirrings for Jones. Van Johnson's on board too as "Speak for Yourself John" Alden. Sad ending actually a slight twist on real life fate of one of the principals. Perhaps a good starting point for a history lesson with the children on Thanksgiving Day.

Fairly good dramatic account of the voyage itself. Attention to physical detail on board the ship and the rigors of life under sail. Costumes are accurate. The tensions between the pilgrams and the ship's company is handled with considerable creative license. The story ends with the Mayflower's return to England and there is no account of how the passengers fared in the New World (half of them died the next year). A reasonably good account of the trip itself, which was miserable, wet and cold.

We completely enjoyed this movie. It makes one appreciate what the early settlers went through to begin this great nation. I hope we never forget the hand of the Lord in guiding our forefathers & those who suffered in behalf of freedom to worship as they may, & have private ownership in our lives today.

Here is a classic movie which is second to none in content to recount the historic landing of the "Pilgrims" on Plymouth Rock, in New England. No movie due to time constraints can present every detail of this historic event nor avoid "Hollywood" compromises due to drama. Nevertheless the Director, Clarence Thomas's genius in production portrays reality. For example, a young boy succumbed to illness and he was buried at sea. Some passengers were swept overboard while the ship sailed through storms. In 1620, this group of religious outcasts rejected the King James Bible because of the Monarch's tyranny on his subjects. Those outcasts dared to print their own Bible (Geneva Bible?). The group, with their supplies - including a printing press, boarded the Mayflower for the voyage to the new world. They endured and survived hardships, storms, hunger and disease. It was historical irony: During a storm, the main beam of the ship developed cracking fractures that could have caused the Mayflower to sink. The printing press, which was intended to print Bibles in the new world, was used like a Jack-brace to hold the underneath of the main beam and was held together and saved the ship?! However, no one stepped foot on dry land, until the Mayflower Compact was authored and everyone had signed allegiance to the document's contents. The austerity of the Captain of the Mayflower was melted away as he witnessed the faith and courage of the pilgrims and stayed until their wilderness outpost was established. The pilgrims established their outpost with the help of friendly Indians and dedicated it with Christianity, in the Name of Jesus Christ, including a printed Bible; the first location to be the beginning of what would become the United States of America.Read more ›
