This grade B retelling of the Longfellow poem is not great art, but it's a good movie for children, especially for a rainy afternoon. Stalwart Willard Parker does battle with a ton of stock footage of storms and ships at sea; and the film is amiable, moving along at a nice clip. Old New England is seldom depicted in old movies (or new ones for that matter), and it's always fascinating to see how it's recreated. This is is a nice reimagining of a bygone era. The actors are more than adequate; avuncular and reassuring, as in a Disney film.
