In this classic story, US Army Lt. Philip Nolan is upset with his assignment to a remote outpost with no possibility for promotion. He intends to join Aaron Burr, who plans to form a new country in the lands west of the Mississippi River. Before he can get away, Nolan is charged with treason. At his court martial, he angrily tells the tribunal that he never wants to see or hear of the United States again. He gets his wish, and is sentenced to permanent, lifetime exile aboard US ships at sea. No crew member can mention anything about the United States within his hearing, and in the books he is allowed to read, all references to the United States are removed. Written by

When Nolan's fiancée Marian visits him on the Hornet in 1835, the song 'Beautiful Dreamer' is playing in the background. 'Beautiful Dreamer' wasn't written until 1864. Foster wrote it just a few days before his death. See more »
True story of a man who harbors traitorous feelings towards his country, this one being the USA, and suffering mightily for it down the road. Great pacing makes this go by really fast and by the time it is over, you wish that it was longer. Good acting from the entire cast--and also a treat to see a short subject in color!! Also a thrill to figure out who all the uncredited actors and actresses are--as they have been in countless films as supporting characters to the main actors. Very enjoyable through and through!!
