Review by Sandra Price (posted on 12-Aug-2007)

One of my favorite movies ever. (Haven't seen the silent version.) Well-written and directed, this if the first movie with Widmark in a good-guy role. Themes woven into the movie include: coming of age for the young boy aging concerns for the grandfather the appropriateness of sea-life for a boy confrontations with local authorities. The most important conflict is the love the boy has for his teacher and his love for his grandfather. Great as a family movie, but an all-around great movie.
