This version of "Captains Courageous" is far better than the original starring Freddy Bartholomew and Spencer Tracey.
The main credit for this goes to Karl Malden who plays Capt. Disko Troop of the fishing packet "We're Here." In the role of Manuel, played by Tracey in 1937, is Ricardo Montalban. Jonathan Kahn reprises the role of Harvey Cheyne and does an excellent job. Neville Brand and Fred Gwynne, two wonderful character actors, provide great support to Malden and Montalban. This version, unlike the original, follows the book far better than the original.
If you can find a copy of this movie, grab it. It aired as a TV movie on ABC and they do not have a copy any more.
