Editorial Reviews

All hands on deck! Anyone wondering why Marie Dressler was such an extraordinary box-office draw need only to step aboard the tug Narcissus and sail away with Tugboat Annie for a knockabout comedy-drama. Dressler stars as savvy skipper Annie, steering through Pacific Northwest waters and through troubles with her hard-working, adoring son Alec (Robert Young) and her hapless, boozing husband Terry (Wallace Beery, Dressler's costar in Min and Bill). There are plenty of laughs, but also lots of familial strife, until life-threatening danger at sea brings out the best in Terry...and puts everyone's priorities in order.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

A very Young Robert and Marie Dressler make this movie a hit!
Wilbur C. Ulmer
Fast forward and their son is now grown up and actually has a passenger ship of his own,the Glacier Queen,which is coming into Secoma that day on its maiden voyage.
Robert Badgley
Dressler plays "Annie", a gruff tugboat captain, who is master of her boat and "Terry" (Beery) her drinking no account husband.

A great salty old movie, and a new discovery for me in Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery both. Both were outstanding in this film. The movie is not digitally remastered but it's as watchable as any other from that era. If you're in to maritime history and that of the Puget sound vicinity, this is a must have. Lots of tugboat imagery and attention paid to technical accuracy.

Dressler plays "Annie", a gruff tugboat captain, who is master of her boat and "Terry" (Beery) her drinking no account husband. Their son "Alec" (Robert Young) grows up to be a "Master mariner" earning the Captain spot on a new liner, the "Glacier Queen". Captain Son Alec has plans to make Mom retire and for Dad to walk the straight and narrow, he soon finds he has crossed the line and is put in his place by Mom. Alec receiving a slap from Mom stays away for a period of time, refusing to visit, all the while under the watchful binocular of Mom from cross' harbor. They reunite by their concern for him and noticing he's late from a run with a storm brewing, they cut their tow and set out looking for him. After a distress flare is spotted, they find that Alec's liner ran aground in the storm, and is helplessly adrift headed for a reef. Risking all, Mom and Pop make the heroic rescue. A great story with a great ending, excellent feel to the whole thing. It's one of my favorite movies now..

It is a great idea for these old movies to be made available by creating copies on demand. However, I must warn you the quality is bad, there are places where the DVD player hangs up (The DVD is new and the surface of the DVD is pristine), there are no special features and the price is too high for the poor quality of the picture. So if you want a historical albeit poor quality movie and you don't mind the high price go for it. If you are expecting a beautiful digitally restored movie forget it!
I loved the old movie with Wallace Beery and Marie Dressler.

Tugboat Annie(released Aug/33)stars,among others,Marie Dressler,Wallace Beery,Robert Young and Maureen O'Sullivan.Tugboat Annie while not a spectacular hit like Emma,still has some very good moments throughout and the two veterans are joined by young and up and coming future stars Young and O'Sullivan.
The story finds Annie(Dressler) as the owner of the tugboat Narcissus,and working alongside her is her recalcitrant hubby Beery, who prefers more nips(booze)than tucks.They both live on the boat with their only son,played (when young) by Frankie Darro.It all this takes place in the town/harbour of Secoma,Washington.As the story opens Annie is coaching her young son to do better in school and to stay on and learn,so he can one day maybe become the captain of his own ship.
Fast forward and their son is now grown up and actually has a passenger ship of his own,the Glacier Queen,which is coming into Secoma that day on its maiden voyage.There's a big to-do and the whole town turns out for a big ceremony.There Annie meets her son's bride to be O'Sullivan,the daughter of one of her old tugboat competitors, who now owns the steam line her son works for.Next day Annie is giving a supper on the boat for her son and his girlfriend.Beery accidentally lets fly a cake of soap into the sauerkraut but cannot get Annie to listen to him.At the supper table Annie awaits the reaction to her food when the son says outright that it tastes awful.That's when Annie discovers the soap and if eyes could kill.
The next day Annie and Berry are given a proposition by their son.He wants his dad to go work for the steam line as a foreman of the harbour, and wants his mother to retire and live life easier in an apartment.

Anne and her erstwhile hubby, enjoy life in the 1930's on their broken down tug. What a performance for Marie Dresser and Wallace Beery. They still make you laugh and cry after 70 years!!
