Now That's A Movie
11 March 2009 | by (NYC, NY) – See all my reviews

Thank you for broadcast this movie last night! With all the different styles and types of movie now a days, I fine it a pleasure to still be able to watch classic movies like this.

I know I may sound old even though I am in my middle 50's, but how can you beat a movie like this.

This movie was made before airplanes were important and even the BROOM of cruise-lines hitting the seas. I truly learned a lot in this movie about the forgotten tug industry which is as important today as it was then.

Especially the part of the movie where Annie saved the freighter from being aground. I truly understood her theory of the lifting the ship from the sand bank.

Now a days you are worried about the grade given to a movie and it's contents, this was entertaining and funny.

WOW to see our past president (Ronald) and Father Knows Best (Jane) was interesting and special.

Once again, thank you TCM for broadcasting this movie last night. Please broadcast the other Tugboat Annie movies! ess
