Storyline

Host Walter Pidgeon introduces the movie Captains Courageous (1937). Based on a novel by Rudyard Kipling, it is the first MGM feature film ever to be shown on network television. It tells the story of a spoiled boy who falls overboard of a luxury liner. He's picked up by a fishing boat. He has to endure life on the boat until they dock in two weeks, but it's more like the fishing crew have to put up with his spoiled ways. Pidgeon then introduces his latest starring role, that in the movie Forbidden Planet (1956). The segments shown from both movies are only the first installments, with future installments shown in weeks to come. Written by Huggo
