The acting, by everyone, is good for its time and the overall look of the film is richly textured and romantic. The presentation of life on a whaling ship is far removed from the realities of whaling ships, according to history, but that's what literary or cinematic romance is all about.
I agree with the U.K. reviewer regarding Betta St. John as the native girl.
I find many MGM films from the early 50s to be notoriously dull, but "All the Brothers Were Valiant" is escapist entertainment at its finest.
Captain Joel Shore is glad and proud for marrying Priscilla (Ann Blyth), a lovely shining little girl who was in love with his brother, Mark (Stewart Granger), believed dead!
Mark, not proved dead, is not a man to fall easy... He left his ship full of fever and rum... A little native girl (Bette St. John), with the face of an angel, looked after him and cured his fever...
In a lagoon on an unchartered island over an oyster bed that had never been touched since the world began, Fetcher (James Whitmore) and Quint (Kurt Kasznar) offer Mark a line of a fortune of beautiful black pearls 'some like full moons and some like tears'...
Captain Mark Shore appears like a ghost on the 'Nathan Ross' and tells his brother Joel that 'half a million worth of pearls were at 12 feet of water, just waiting to pick up.'
Captain Joel, knowing that the pearls could bring blood on the ship, refuses to turn back the ship to get the fortune that the native girl dropped in the shallow water while fleeing, with Mark, the furious frantic natives...
Mark, forced by his ambition to return for the pearls at any cost, becomes the main instigator of a mutiny on the Nathan Ross, starting a revolt against his own brother...
Ann Blyth, whose beauty 'blushes all the whales,' increases the rivalry between the two brothers on the whaling ship...
A remake of a silent melodrama made in 1923, "All The Brothers Were Valiant" has all the exciting moments of a great adventure film: a storm braving the fury of Cape Horn, a deadly combat with a monster of the deep, cut-throat fight between whaling sailors seeking fortune, and and exotic romance in the arms of an island sweetheart...
of the adventure; this plus a love "triangle between the two brothers over the one woman. reasonably well-done and scenic.
