Trivia

Through the four-part television movie Harmstorf became famous. He was identified as the epitome of the vital adventurer and as an actor henceforth with the role of the sea wolves. See more »

Alternate Versions

In 1973 East Germany's DEFA created another theatrical version based on the 2-part Romanian edit. This DDR version was shown in 2 short parts (78 min. and 73 min.) and differs in content from the German TV and cinema versions and the Romanian TV version. Since the Romanian TV version had to be dubbed, this is a different German language version than the West-German one. The character Wolf Larson for example appears much more brutal than in all the other versions. See more »

Fascinating!
12 February 2003 | by TeewurstmannSee all my reviews

10 out of 10 - This is truly one of the best adventure movies (or mini series) ever made. The performance is so real, so gripping, so great! I've only seen it once and that was years ago, but it still had such a great impact on me. Please release it on DVD one day!
