A pretty good remake
25 December 2008 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

It's really a shame that no user has commented this rare gem yet. A truly good film which is a remake of a great classic: THE SEA WOLF, directed by Michael Curtiz and shot in 1941, starring Edward G Robinson and John Garfield. This movie was adapted from a Jack London novel.

It was a great surprise for me to find such a good remake. Even if I admit that Barry Sullivan is not Edward G Robinson and Peter Graves not John Garfield either... But the main topic and truly depth of characters are respected. Barry Sullivan is rather poignant in his ambivalent character: tyrant and touching in the same time. A man tortured by his own demons. The film is well done, no boring at all. Harmon Jones filmography deserves to be discovered again. I'll try to comment other rare films from him.

Anyway, make me a pleasure, don't miss WOLF LARSEN.
