Trivia

Contrary to the plot of "Plymouth Adventure," after landing in Massachusetts, the colonists tried three times to sail southward to Virginia, but was driven back by storms. See more »

Goofs

The Mayflower did not establish the first settlement in New England, for George Popham founded a colony of 120 souls there in 1607, thirteen years earlier. After many died from the hazards that Captain Jones warns the Pilgrims about, the few survivors departed. See more »

Capt. Christopher Jones: There are no honest men!

Capt. Christopher Jones: I've lived long enough in the world to know what men are made of.

Capt. Christopher Jones: There's the good of the world, Mr. Winslow - the good clean sea and my ship... my good ship. I put faith in my ship, and she's never failed me. Don't put your faith in men, and you'll never be disappointed.

Hollywood's Pilgrims
23 November 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Where is the masterpiece American film on this dramatic voyage and settlement of the founders of our democracy? Plymouth Adventure, the best of its kind, has many of the virtues of great American studio work (convincing mise en scene, great ship, vivid action [the storm], fine acting [try to ignore the hobbled accents], and smooth story continuity) and can be enjoyed because of all that, but it never conveys a sense of the agonized desperation and profound spiritual quest of the dissenters. Perhaps Gene Tierney is just too beautfiul, perhaps the costumes are just too sparkling, and certainly the tragic affair with the Captain is better suited to a Douglas Sirk melodrama. For a different account, one can view Mayflower (Anthony Hopkins version), but that errs on the side of political correctness, and drab plotting, and tub-sails a low-budget toy Mayflower. We await the great film about the adventure of these heroic common folks to whom we owe so much.
