While filming, Jean Peters was met by a fan several times, who bombarded her with marriage proposals. Peters turned him down every time, but the man did not quit proposing until she informed him that marrying her would mean taking care of her family. See more »
Impressive locations of Maine are this film's main attraction
Pert Jean Peters is in charge of an orphan boy (played by Dean Stockwell). Dana Andrews is a fisherman in a small town in Maine. He is highly attracted to Peters (who can blame him). However, when the orphan boy shows a distinct passion for the sea, Peters and Andrews find themselves at odds. Cesar Romero and Anne Revere co-star in this un-pretentious flick about romance, adventure and a boy's love for the sea. It's worth seeing at least once, but Fox does not offer it in VHS. Try looking for it in one of the movie classic cable channels. The Maine locations are quite impressive and the acting is fine.
