The Long Voyage Home

Overview

John Ford welded four of Eugene O'Neill's one-act plays about the sea, Bound East for Cardiff, The Long Voyage Home, The Zone, and Moon of the Caribees, into this melancholy film about wayfaring seamen, changing the setting from the turn of the century to WWII. This was O'Neill's favorite of the films based on his work, and he watched it often enough to eventually wear out his print. After a night of revelry in the West Indies, the crew of the SS Glencairn return to the tramp steamer and set sail for Baltimore. ...

Overview

John Ford welded four of Eugene O'Neill's one-act plays about the sea, Bound East for Cardiff, The Long Voyage Home, The Zone, and Moon of the Caribees, into this melancholy film about wayfaring seamen, changing the setting from the turn of the century to WWII. This was O'Neill's favorite of the films based on his work, and he watched it often enough to eventually wear out his print. After a night of revelry in the West Indies, the crew of the SS Glencairn return to the tramp steamer and set sail for Baltimore. They're a varied lot, from middle-aged Irishman Driscoll (Thomas Mitchell), to the young Swedish ex-farmer Ole Olsen (John Wayne), to the brooding Lord Jim-like Englishman Smitty (Ian Hunter). After the ship picks up a load of dynamite in Baltimore, the rough seas they encounter become especially nerve-racking to the crew, who are also concerned that Smitty might be a German spy.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Among John Ford's finest films, The Long Voyage Home is notable chiefly for the work of the great cinematographer Gregg Toland. The director admired Toland so much that he allowed him a free hand behind the camera, and the cameraman used the film to try out new lenses that would allow for greater depth of focus, lenses that he would also use on his next film, the historic Citizen Kane (1941). Like that masterpiece, this is also one of the most beautifully photographed films ever made, stunning in its angular expressionism, arresting wide-angled close-ups, and enveloping chiaroscuro. It's a style well-suited to this bleak, episodic tale of seafaring life, which for O'Neill and Ford is a metaphor for loneliness. Between the grueling, sometimes frightening months at sea, and the brief respite of whoring and drinking in port, the film depicts a grim way of life, and it's a small victory when the crew are able to return one of their number to the land. Except for the miscasting of Wayne as a genial Swede, and mediocre work by Ward Bond, the cast is uniformly superb. John Qualen is particularly haunting and Mildred Natwick is memorable amidst the courtesan contingent.
