: Hi Mohicanlanders,
: Did anyone catch the first two Horatio Hornblower movies on Sundays on A&E. Not our time period, but very good. I think the acting is excellent. Any time the hero is strong on morality, duty, responsibility and doing the right thing no matter what the personal cost, I am hooked. I would like to hear your comments on the Horatio Hornblower movies, if you saw them.
Hi, Pat! I watched the first one and was absolutely hooked! Watched the 2nd one last night, and still felt the same way. A great adventcha, I think! And I concur that the acting was well done. I like Horatio...Iain something. I thought I recognized him from Titanic, and watched it again to see, and I believe I am correct. I think he's the crew member who comes back to try to rescue the poor, frozen people in the water. I was impressed with him in Titanic because he just looked so stricken that they had waited too late to save anyone. (Except our heroine, of course!)
Anyway, I think he's doing an excellent job in this swashbuckling sorta film, and I also liked the Captain, too. It's all great fun, in addition to your well-made point about the lessons of duty and responsibility. And, BTW, A & E has been running encores on Tuesday night, so anyone who misses them on Sunday can catch them then, and possibly even at other times. (A & E is pretty good for that.)
