Captain Hates the Sea, The
Famed as a “sea-going Grand Hotel,” this splendid comedy-drama presents a variety of interlocking stories set aboard a luxury liner bound for Latin America. Such marvelous actors as Victor McLaglen, John Gilbert (in his final feature), Wynne Gibson, Alison Skipworth, Walter Connolly (in the title role), Helen Vinson, Leon Errol, Tala Birell, Walter Catlett, Arthur Treacher, Akim Tamiroff, Donald Meek, Luis Alberni and even The Three Stooges (playing it semi-straight in their first Columbia feature) contribute to the merriment under the direction of Academy Award®-winner Lewis Milestone (Best Director, All Quiet On The Western Front, 1929/30)—who was also responsible for one of Hollywood’s most celebrated telegrams: when studio head Harry Cohn wired, “Hurry up. The cost is staggering,” Milestone took one look at his booze-soaked thespians and replied, “So is the cast.” Newly remastered.
Price: 17.49
