  • ""On the long voyage home from the West Indies to Baltimore and then to England, the British tramp steamer the Glencairn takes aboard a cargo of munitions, a circumstance which turns the natural complaining of the crew into a case of genuine fear. Those fears are realized when a heavy gale tests the mettle of the ship and in the storm, mountainous waves hurtle the sailor Yank to the seething deck, thus bringing him to his death as his shipmates, Ole Olson and Driscoll, watch helplessly. As they approach land, the crew begins to suspect their brooding, aloof shipmate, Smitty, of sending signals to the Nazis, but they discover that Smitty has really withdrawn in disgrace from his family and all those around him because of his alchoholism. This revelation forces Smitty to resolve to return to his wife and children, but the reunion is tragically doomed when a Nazi plane swoops down from the skies off England and Smitty is killed in the attack. Safely in port after their harrowing crossing, the crew channel their energies into making sure that Ole leaves the sea to return to his aged mother in Sweden, but after bidding his friends farewell, Ole is shanghaied aboard the Amindra. Rescued by Driscoll and his other mates, Ole's voyage ends happily. Not so for Driscoll, because in the rescue he is taken prisoner and sails off aboard the Amindra in Ole's place. As the remaining seafarers return to the Glencairn to resume their long journey, they learn that Driscoll perished aboard the Amindra when the ship was sunk by a torpedo"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940."@en

  • "Director John Ford draws upon four one-act plays by Eugene O'Neill ("Long Voyage Home," "The Moon of the Caribbean," "Bound East for Cardiff," and "In the Zone") in this film which captures both the bleak despair and the redemptive fellowship of seafaring misfits. Dudley Nichols handled the screen adaptation, while John Wayne appears in one of the best of his dramatic performances."@en

  • "An amalgam of four one-act plays by Eugene O'Neill shows the lives and characters of the hard-bitten crew of the S.S. Glencairn, loaded with highly explosive ammunition, sailing for home in the wake of World War II."
  • "Set on a freighter making a dangerous journey to England loaded with ammunition during the early days of World War II, this is a mood piece with an episodic narrative based on Eugene O'Neill who apparently approved of the film adaptation of three of his one act plays. The sensuality of the dark, moody images is linked with death. There are frequent references to 'going home'. The men are propelled by fate causing them to constantly ship out. Ole (Wayne) is the innocent who must be saved by making 'the long journey home'. There is an undercurrent of homosexuality. With one exception the emotional ties between the men are stronger than with any women."@en
