Plot Summary

Before taking the Renown back to Jamaica for their court martial on charges of mutiny, Hornblower, Kennedy, and Bush convince an insecure and indecisive Lt. Buckland, now acting captain, that it would be appropriate to launch a surprise attack on the Spanish fortress at Santo Domingo. Matters are complicated when the inept Buckland incurs the enmity of the local rebels, who now regard them as enemies too. Captain Sawyer's increasing paranoia, deserting seamen, Buckland's growing jealousy of Hornblower, and the duplicity of the Spaniards all complicate the already perilous situation.

Trivia At the trial, when Hobbs compares captain Sawyer to admiral Nelson, Commodore Pellew and the other judges seem quite uncomfortable, with Pellew awkwardly muttering "Yes...Nelson". This is actually a very accurate historical reaction, giving the fact that, at the time, Nelson had become a piece of gossip and a source of public embarrassment for the Royal Navy for his open affair with Emma Hamilton, wife of the British ambassador to Naples. Fellow commanders and high society were extremely critical, claiming Nelson put himself before his duty and his conduct was unfit of a gentleman, even considering the option of removing him from command; yet he was loved and revered among the sailors. This makes the scene extremely very authentic. See more »
Goofs When the Spanish prisoners break into the captains cabin, Captain Sawyer and Midshipman Wellard are standing behind the table, with Wellard to the Captains left. After they are shot, the scene showing them laying on the deck, now has Wellard to the Captains right. See more »

Quotes 4th Lt. Archie Kennedy: I remember when you used to be scared of heights, Mr. Hornblower.
3rd Lt. Horatio Hornblower: [Looking at the height he must descend from] Nothing's changed, Mr. Kennedy.
2nd Lt. Bush: They say one must always do what one dislikes.
3rd Lt. Horatio Hornblower: [Nervously] Oh, yes?
2nd Lt. Bush: When I was a boy, I had to eat turnips.
3rd Lt. Horatio Hornblower: Eat them now, do you?
2nd Lt. Bush: [after Hornblower begins his descent] Never touch 'em.
