About the Movie

Screen legend Gregory Peck ("To Kill A Mockingbird") brings to life C.S. Forester's classic nautical hero, Horatio Hornblower. Hornblower battles the French and the Spanish forces during the Napoleonic wars, but also finds time for romance in this spectacle from director Raoul Walsh ("White Heat," "High Sierra"). Co-starring Virginia Mayo ("The Best Years of Our Lives"). Leonard Maltin calls this an "exciting, well-produced sea epic.

Gregory Peck what a class Act

Excellent movie from its day I highly recommend this movie

One of the greats.

Here's a chance to view Gregory Peck in what he once said was his favorite role, as Captain Horatio Hornblower. The plot follows the events of three of the novels in an abridged but no less exciting pace.


An overblown and poorly written period piece with every cliche you can imagine. The A&E series with Ioan Griffudd is far, far superior in every way.
