The production of this sea epic was inspired by the actor, Sterling Hayden, a friend of director, Raul daSilva. Hayden had been the captain of a tall ship as a young man (leading to his discovery by Paramount Pictures). See more »
A poorly constructed piece that marred the great poem.
After seeing this piece, I couldn't feel anything but pity for Coleridge. His poem, a true classic, is truly mishandled in this bumbling attempt to glorify an epic that doesn't need the favor. The rhythm is off, the drawings are rather ugly and confusing, and the live-action shots are stupid (and often misplaced). The feel of the poem is lost and muddled.
