: 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.
Good news for Hornblower fans! Someone on the A&E Hornblower message board spoke to someone from A&E at a re-enactment about more Hornblower installments. Ioan has signed on to do FOUR more movies. It took two years to film this four, but it will be worth the wait for the next four. I never heard of the Hornblower books before. When I saw the Peck movie, I just assumed he was a real person. Now that I know better, I plan to read through the series -- along with the Leatherstocking series, of course! Later!
