Storyline

Harvey Cheyne, Jr., second richest person in the world, orphaned and spoiled rotten, encounters a cigar and the sea on his way to England for boarding school. Seasick, over the rail for real, rescued by Dan Troop of a Gloucester fishing sailboat. Three months at sea, under a firm but fair Captain Troop (fair wages of $10.50 a month, if you don't work you don't eat). A hard life and a dangerous one, and a lot of growing up to do through hardship and tragedy. Written by Bruce Cameron <dumarest@midcoast.com>

Excellent family movie
12 December 2001 | by (Ohio USA) – See all my reviews

Thanks to the Hallmark tv channel for reshowing of this Kipling Classic. This version is by far the best. It is welldone and very entertaining. It has all the pathos needed to show a youngster finding himself. A very thought-provoking movie. Worth seeing more than once!
