Quotes:
Hornblower:How are you, Archie?
Kennedy:Hungry.
Hornblower:Great, I will have the innkeeper send you some food. Ham and eggs, possibly. Some trout...
Kennedy:Horatio, there is something I have to tell you...
Hornblower:Oh, don't you worry about anything. Let's just get you back your feet, eh?
Kennedy:The duchess isn't a duchess. Cleopatra laying at Mark Antony's feet, maybe. Cleopatra, Macbeth, Gertrude. But she is no duchess.
Hornblower:Archie, what are you talking about?
Kennedy:She is an actress. Her name is Catherine Cobham.
Hornblower:You're mistaken.
Kennedy:No, I'm not. Drury Lane was once my home, and I had saw her performed. Mark my words, Horatio. She is an actress.

terrific swashbuckler, a whole lot of fun, 26 April 1999
Author: Faith-5 from Vancouver, BC, Canada

The Horatio Hornblower series of TV movies is not the usual A & E culture vulture stuff. It's actually fun! Based on the novel about a dashing and ambitious young sailor in the Royal Navy in the 18th century, it's not exactly subtle, but it's great action-adventure genre stuff. Handsome Iaon Gruffud (Kate Winslet's rescuer in Titanic) stars as the too-gallant-to-be-true hero, continually getting into sticky situations. The script is witty, the characters real, and the period is shown convincingly. I guess it's kind of corny, but it's so much fun to watch you really won't care. I'm not really a costume drama person, but this one changed my mind. Catch it on A & E.
