Goofs:
Factual errors: Almost certainly the result of deliberate chuckles by the film makers, two filler scenes showing ships under way with crew members scurrying around have voice-overs calling orders that make no sense. The first is "Splice the mizzen!", which can't happen because the mizzen is the third (back) mast on the sloop being shown and a splice is a means of joining or adding a loop to a rope (not that many pieces of rope are called 'ropes' on a sailing ship!). The second is "Weigh the sails!", which is equally goofy because sails can be 'handed', 'reefed', 'sheeted', 'brailed' and lots of other things, but only anchors are 'weighed' when they're taken up as in "anchor's a-weigh, Sir!", and even that the ship is now 'under weigh'.See more »
Quotes:
Commander Horatio Hornblower:[Speaking of the loyalty of Irish sailors to the British Crown] It is better to earn loyalty than to demand it.
Admiral Sir Edward Pellew:When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Commander Horatio Hornblower:Sir?
Admiral Sir Edward Pellew:Hmmm. You know, Hornbloer, it is very hard for a father to see his children grow up.
Commander Horatio Hornblower:I'm not sure I understand you, sir.
Admiral Sir Edward Pellew:I dare say, you will.

Good, but is it Hornblower? Read the books!, 4 December 2003
Author: howerd from Pasadena

By now this series has attracted its own set of fans, so the issue of how faithful it remains to the Forester stories may be moot. Still, I've always been puzzled by one element of the credits -- the show never seems to say which of "the novels of C.S. Forester" a particular movie is based on. LOYALTY and DUTY are loosely based on HORNBLOWER AND THE HOTSPUR, the tale of Hornblower's first command. Gruffudd, though a good enough actor and quite charming, seems to miss what was always the key element of Forester's Hornblower -- his constant self-doubt and crushing insecurity. The power of the novels comes from Hornblower's inability to see his own heroism and greatness for it is. He might be a hero to the world; to himself he was always the gangling Midshipman who was "seasick at Spithead." Julia Sawahla, on the other hand, is a perfect choice for Maria. A comment objected to her seeming "dowdy" -- that is precisely the point. Hornblower's unhappy marriage and unrewarding personal life were always intended to contrast with his glory on the sea. The show is fine -- the books are true classics. If you like the show, be sure to read the book.
