About this movie

Screen legend GREGORY PECK brings to life C.S. Forester's classic nautical hero, Horatio Hornblower. In 1807, unflappable Capt. Hornblower of the British Navy is sent on a secret mission to divert Napoleon's Spanish allies by sponsoring a megalomaniac's Central American revolution. After a hard voyage, unexpected complications force Hornblower to revise his plans...and play reluctant host to the beautiful sister of the Duke of Wellington. Sea-battles, remarkable adventures, and a star-crossed romantic interlude follow. MPAA Rating: NOTRATED (c) 1951 Warner Bros. All Rights Reserved.

Captain Horatio Hornblower is part of the Essential Gregory Peck Collection. The story is well-written with plenty of action on the high seas and it is funny at the right times. Peck plays Captain Hornblower, a British naval hero during the Napoleonic Wars. His exploits extend from the Pacific to the European countryside.
