Trivia John Wayne once told biographer Maurice Zolotow: "Usually it would be Mr. Ford [John Ford] who helped the cinematographer get his compositions for maximum effect . . . but in this case it was Gregg Toland who helped Mr. Ford. 'Long Voyage' is about as beautifully photographed a movie as there ever has been." See more »
Goofs Aboard the Amindra the deck cargo of oil drums sound empty and move around during the fight. In addition they are not lashed down with cargo netting making them a hazard to the ship and crew if they sail through rough seas. See more »
