Product Description

Just released: "The Adventure Continues" with more high-seas derring-do from C. S. Forester's heroic Hornblower as he captains His Majesty's ships during the chaotic Napoleonic wars. Magnificently re-creating the era, these new tales were filmed like the originals, with full-scale replica ships, far-flung locales, and Ioan Gruffudd ("Titanic") reprising his role as the much-loved commander. Also stars David Warner ("Time Bandits, Titanic"). 3 hours 20 min. on 2 cassettes or 2 DVDs. Also available: The Emmy® Award-winning original as seen on A&E. 1998, boxed set is 4 hours 40 min. on 4 cassettes.

Move over, Mr. Darcy, A&E has a new heartthrob. He's third lieutenant Horatio Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd reprising his star-making role), C.S. Forester's swashbuckling hero of the high seas. Devotees of the original Emmy Award-winning miniseries will want to "have at" this boxed set containing two feature-length episodes in which the dashing Hornblower and crew engage in "foolhardy actions, rash judgments, and irresponsible adventures." "Mutiny" finds our young hero awaiting trial for "black bloody mutiny" against a once distinguished, but increasingly unhinged Captain Sawyer (David Warner). "It was for the good of the service," Hornblower insists to his mentor, Sir Edward Pellew (Robert Lindsay). "We were headed for disaster." Hornblower relates the events that led him to a Kingston, Jamaica, prison cell. In "Retribution," Hornblower's trial unfolds, and the events surrounding the mutiny are further revealed: Captain Sawyer is detained in a straitjacket, disgruntled crew members desert, dithering acting captain Butland assumes command, and Hornblower leads a surprise attack on a Spanish fort. Meanwhile, the judges look for a scapegoat "to take away the smell." Maritime buffs will have a merry time, with all the shipboard intrigue and skirmishes. Like the "hot shot" that disables an escaping enemy vessel, this boxed set will be "a palpable hit." --Donald Liebenson
