In 1839, the revolt of Mende captives aboard a Spanish owned ship causes a major controversy in the United States when the ship is captured off the coast of Long Island. The courts must decide whether the Mende are slaves or legally free.
Pete Sandich and buddy Al Yackey are daredevil aerial forest-fire fighters. Pete finds True Love with Dorinda but won't give up the job. When he takes one risk too many, Dorinda faces deep grief and cannot easily put her life back together.Written by
When the movie was released on VHS cassette, Spielberg insisted that it be in letterbox/widescreen format to preserve the visual integrity of the film. At the time, it was traditional to release movies on VHS in "pan and scan". See more »
When Dorinda rides her bike onto the airstrip to tell Pete that she loves him before he takes off, she jumps off her bicycle in front of the port engine and it isn't running. She climbs up on the plane to the cockpit scene but when she climbs down to her bicycle the engine is running and Pete is still on his feet in the cockpit so he couldn't have started the engine that fast. It was the reason she couldn't hear him saying "I love you". See more »

After seeing a movie with Marg Helgenberger made in the 90's "Death Dreams" with Christopher Reeve, I felt the need to look for other Marg Helgenberger performances besides her famous turn in CSI - To my surprise, not many, except "Death Dreams" where she gives a performance that goes straight to something truly personal. She is amazing, amazing! That's how I got to Always. The only Spielberg film I hadn't seen. The film is a sort of remake of "A Guy Named Joe" charming with a lovely central performance by Holly Hunter but where is Marg? She's way back in the background. Beautiful and real but way too far away in the background. The most memorable memorable moment, at least for a film buff - is the last film appearance by Audrey Hepburn, as an angel.
