Captains Courageous

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Archetypal MGM family fodder, with rich brat Bartholomew falling overboard from an ocean liner, and getting saved by Portuguese fisherman Tracy, who knocks the stuffing out of the spoilt kid and teaches him a few of the less luxurious lessons of life. Based on a Kipling story, it's hardly great art, but it passes the time.
