This is one of Nicolas Cage's early films,taking place in the late 1800s.Displaying a sport of sports for the time,Sculling.Before football,golf and baseball,Sculling was the gentlemans sport of leisure so to speak.Based on a true story young rower Ned Hanlen played by Cage is a real life hero and undefeated Champion winner for years and years with many awards on 3 different continents.I was very impressed with Nicolas Cage as he really puts in the work here and like the
Rocky training scences sells this film on all levels.Excellent period piece and great atmosphere plus Cages's fantastic performance make Ned come alive.Its not Sea Biscuit but then again Sea Biscuit aint The Boy In Blue but each film has its own heros to root for.Nic Cage trained months for this part and as a early effort from 1985,(Nics only 20 years old here) he sets the stage for this actors amazingly talented and lengthly career of over 25 years and over 45 movies later remains as one of the top actors today.Movie also co stars Christopher Plummer and as usual plays his part perfect.Every one has its own kind of hero and The Boy in Blue takes you there and back.A winner on all levels.And to the real Ned Hanlen congratulations on a illustrius career,you should rest in peace knowing your were a hero to many people and with this film Nicolas Cage has done you justice.Ned Hanlen was born in 1855 in Ontario and died in 1908 at age of 52.One of his races was on the Toronto harbour and he has a monument in his honor on Torontos Centre Island and a steet named after him also. R.I.P Ned Hanlen,you were the definative Boy in Blue, a hero of the times to all !!!!!!

This is an amazing movie based on a true story. Christopher Plummer and Cynthia Dale, although normally on stage, are equal to the main character - played by Nicolas Cage - who was brilliant in the role. The Boy in Blue

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! Dec 6 2006
By Kay
Format:DVD
I have read some reviews, and they thought this movie was boring. It's not boring at all. I thought it was a great movie! I have always loved watching these rowers. We used to live by a lake when I was a kid and we would go down and watch them practice.

Looking at Nic Cage's hot body isn't boring either!

4.0 out of 5 stars ENTERTAINING BIOPIC... March 16 2002
By Lawyeraau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This 1986 film features a very young, buff and brawny, athletic Nicholas Cage in the role of crude Canadian backwoods bootlegger, Ned Hanlan, who turned into a legendary world class rower. Discovered by an amateur oarsman and self styled entrepreneur named Bill (David Naughton), Ned, using a new style of boat with a sliding seat, is propelled to fame when he wins a race in Philadelphia against a heavily favored contender. His win was a total upset, bringing Ned under the scrutiny of a rich man's betting syndicate, headed by a wealthy man named Knox (Christopher Plummer).
Knox, a man used to having his way by any means necessary, makes Bill an offer he can't refuse. Knox then takes over Ned's future and gets him a professional trainer in order to prepare him for major races. In the meantime, Ned and Margaret (Cynthia Dale), Knox's comely niece, begin a flirtation that ultimately turns into a romance after much angst. When Ned finally gets an opportunity to race against the Australian world champion, he discovers to his consternation and dismay just how much faith Knox has in his ability to win. What follows next causes Ned to be banned from racing in the United States.
A chastened Ned, discarded by Knox, returns home and turns to Walter, the man who invented the boat with the sliding seat. He begs Walter to train him, so that he can enter and race in England on the Thames and vindicate himself. Walter really believes in him, so he gets Knox to agree to race his current boy wonder against his, but not before Walter has proffered Knox his life's dream. When the time for the race finally comes, betrayal, treachery, and skulduggery are the keywords of the day. To find out what happens during this career making race, and to discover what comes of the romance between Margaret and Knox, one should view this film. It will not disappoint.
Christopher Plummer leads the cast with his chillingly portrayal of the rich and unprincipled Knox. Nicholas Cage attacks the role of Ned Hanlan with boyish and engaging enthusiasm, while David Naughton delights with his portrayal of Bill, the former manager and erstwhile friend. Cynthia Dale is charming in the role of Margaret, the niece who finds herself adopting the role that she was pledged to play by her uncle. The rest of the cast is likewise uniformly excellent. This entertaining and informative film about a turn of the century athlete will fully engage the viewer.

Plot:
A real-life story, A wild, uncontrollable youth, Hanlan is adopted by a gambler named Bill, who promotes the boy on the sculling circuit for his own monetary gain. Ruthlessly businessman Knox assumes control of Harlan’s career, but when Ned discovers just how ruthless Knox can be, he casts his lot with the first honest man he has met, inventor-speculator Walter. Harlan’s professional success is capped by his marriage to Margaret, Knox's previously unattainable niece.
Even if you’re not a Nicolas Cage fan, you will enjoy watching this movie.
