Milk River Madman is our host and doing a fine job at it. If you wish to play. Post a clip on your site. Try to make it 3 minutes or less, then stop by MRM's site say I'm up, with the title of your movie. You can also see who else is playing. The topic for this week is: Coming of age movie. Captains Courageous is a 1937 MGM family adventure film. Based on the 1897 novel, by Rudyard Kipling, that follows the adventures of fifteen-year-old Harvey Cheyne Jr., the arrogant and spoiled son of a railroad tycoon. Filmed in black-and-white, Captains Courageous was advertised by MGM as a coming-of-age classic with exciting action sequences. The title comes from the ballad "Mary Ambree", which starts "When captains courageous, whom death could not daunt". I enjoyed the book more than the movie. The tail thats told, regardless of medium is truly one of coming-of-age.
