The Boy in Blue

The Boy in Blue

Ned Hanlan was Canada's most successful sculling champion at the turn of the 20th century. This dramatization of his life begins in his youth, when the wild young man is informally adopted by a gambler who promotes Ned on the sculling circuit, betting on the boy's rowing skills solely to make money off him. Later, a ruthless businessman named Knox takes over Ned's career, but when Ned realizes how dishonest Knox is, he finds another manager. Walter is an inventor and the first honest man Ned has dealt with in his career and, under Walter's guidance, Ned rises to great success in the sculling world.

AD V (mx) wrote: How can you not like a movie that has winos melting in every color of the rainbow plus an unusual game of catch with an unusual...item. At it's core it's a black comedy with alot of gore but don't be surprised if you feel like taking a shower after watching this.

Erik G (au) wrote: Sterling Hayden plays a Swedish farmer, and his accent is only one step up from the Swedish Chef. He still delivers a great performance, but the effect is like if Jimmy Stewart had done his Vertigo performance while wearing a clown nose. (If this movie hadn't been so low budget, they could've gotten Max Von Sydow and then they really would have had something.) Aside from that, everything else is great. Ned Young is great as the villain, a man whose time has passed. The dialog is great. Another great western for Joseph H. Lewis. (Everyone should also check out A Lawless Street.)

Mackenie S (de) wrote: Well here it is...the last of eight films Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland made together. It's one of their better ones. Even though, de Havilland never really had much opportunity to display her full talent, but in this film there are some available. The goodbye scene is heartbreaking, for she knows she'll never see him again. Perhaps there's a small underlining sense that this will be their final film.

Zach P (it) wrote: Not a perfect film, but it's very touching. Wonderful banter between Tennant and Pike, with a touching performance from Billy Connolly. The real stars, however, are the three children. They are absolutely fantastic.
