Trivia

Director Clarence Brown later said casting Van Johnson was a huge mistake. See more »

Goofs

The New World was visited in 1607. In One scene they show a map of the Massachusetts area. They call it New England but they are headed to Virginia. How could they have mapped out New England without having visited it yet? See more »

Quotes

Offscreen chorus in opening titles: [singing] Confess Jehovah thankfully for He is good, for his Mercie continueth forever. To God of gods confesse do ye because His bountiful mercie continueth forever. Unto the Lord of lords confesse because His merciful kindness continueth forever. To Him that doth, Himself only, things wondrous great, for His Mercie continueth forever; continueth forever.

Birth of a nation.
20 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Fairly entertaining adventure yarn,with too much resorting to voice-over. There are two very good moments:the storm -Van Johnson will have known two in the space of 2 years;he'll be on the Caine during the typhoon(the Caine mutiny 1954)- and the little boy who dies with the bird (Noah's dove)in his hand.He ,too,had flown too far from home.

Spencer Tracy has a tailor-made part:the grumpy captain with a heart of gold.Gene Tierney's grace and beauty supply the love interest.Her death is quite romantic.The film is somewhat too short and the building of the village and the first winter are botched.

An interesting scene shows the birth of a democracy and ideas that 1789 French revolution will rekindle.
