From Raoul Walsh, the legendary director of The Thief of Bagdad, The Big Trail, The Roaring Twenties, White Heat and Gun Fury, comes this epic seafaring adventure starring screen greats Gregory Peck (Duel in the Sun, The Big Country) and Anthony Quinn (The Guns of Navarone, Against All Flags), and beautifully shot in Technicolor by award-winning cinematographer Russell Metty (Magnificent Obsession, Midnight Lace). Set in 1850, Peck stars as swaggering sea captain Jonathan Clark, who poaches seal pelts off the coast of Russian-owned Alaska. However, the real danger begins upon returning to San Francisco where he falls for a countess (Ann Blyth, Thunder on the Hill) fleeing from her engagement to a greedy Russian prince (Carl Esmond, Ministry of Fear). When Clark learns of her kidnapping, he sets sail—amid gale-force winds and treacherous seas—on a harrowing race to rescue his lady love and beat his longtime rival (Quinn). Featuring breathtaking action sequences, soaring cinematography and bawdy humor, this exciting classic is one to enjoy again and again.
