Storyline

It's the mid-nineteenth century. The neighboring Shore and Crowninshield families of the American east coast have a long tradition of seafaring. Of Jeremiah Shore's four sons, the only one not at sea is the youngest, Joel Shore, solely because of his age. Joel has had a long friendship with the Crowninshield's daughter, Priscilla Crowninshield, that friendship which is now on the brink of romantic love as they become of age, although this new-found love is unspoken on both sides. Joel hopes that when his eldest brother, Mark Shore, captain of the Nathan Ross, returns home from his latest voyage, he will allow Joel to sail with him. Although Mark still sees Joel as the "youngin'" of the family, Joel, through slightly underhanded means, is able to convince Mark that he is man enough to become a sailor. Also on this layover at home, Mark notices that Priscilla has become a beautiful young woman, who he now wants to marry. Mark arranges the engagement with his father and Priscilla's ...

Lots of "stormy" action
2 August 1999 | by (JACKSONVILLE, OREGON) – See all my reviews

The very poor print being shown on cable and satellite obscures the impact of this raw tale of two brothers who love the same woman. The younger brother is loyal to the older demented one who thinks he has been betrayed. Joan, as the bone of contention, comes off as a saucy lass who can't quite make up her mind until the trouble starts. Look for lots of "stormy" action in this several times remade epic based on Ben Ames Williams' "All the Brothers Were Valiant".
