Format: DVD
Universal Pictures presents "THE WORLD IN HIS ARMS" (1952 105 min/Color) -- Starring: Gregory Peck, Ann Blyth, Anthony Quinn, John McIntire, Carl Esmond & Hans Conried

Directed by Raoul Walsh

Gregory Peck and Anthony Quinn play two seal-hunting rivals in this adventure film set in the days when Alaska was a Russian territory. Peck is adventuring seafarer Jonathan Clark, who falls in love with Russian Countess Marina Selanova (Ann Blyth) while the countess is in San Francisco fleeing an arranged marriage to the vile Prince Semyon (Carl Esmond). The Countess wants to hire a ship to take her to Sitka, AK, where her uncle, General Ivan Vorashilov (Sig Rumann), is governor.

Portugee (Quinn) can't raise money for the voyage, so the countess agrees to sail with Clark (Peck), and the two quickly fall in love. But Prince Semyon sails into San Francisco just as Clark and the Countess are about to be wed, and the prince abducts her and takes her to Alaska, threatening to kill her uncle if she doesn't marry him. Clark and Portugee then agree to race to Alaska, with the winner getting the other's ship and the seal catch. Clark's boat wins the race, but the Russians arrest both the men as seal poachers. Countess Marina agrees to marry Semyon if he will order the seal hunters released.

What is the outcome, well purchase or rent the film and your questions will be answered.

Excellent big-scale adventure story!

It is a wonderful blend of action, adventure, romance and just the right touch of comedy, even if occasionally absurd. Anthony Quinn's characterization of the Portuguee would have stolen this film from a lesser actor than Gregory Peck, but he manages to hold up his end quite well. Ann Blyth is regal enough to play any royal. She hardly sings in this film at all. I always enjoy The World in His Arms.

Yawn. A fairly dull "historical" romantic adventure tale starring Gregory Peck as a bon vivant schooner captain whose sailing run, between Russian-owned Alaska and the newly founded San Francisco boomtown, brings him into conflict with the Tsarist forces in charge of the far North. The film starts out with great promise, but grinds to a halt with a slow-moving romantic plot involving the rather unappealing, pinch-faced Ann Blythe. Unfortunately, when he finally gets back to sea, the action sequences are hardly more lively, or better directed. What was up with this film? Was it just a bad season for director Raoul Walsh? Well, whatever it was, I was mucho bored for much of this film. I did manage to amuse myself with the thought that the loquacious John McIntire's character would stay up in Alaska after the film's end and later found the town of Skagway, which he would rule with an evil, iron fist. (See: "The Far Country," from 1954, if you want to get the joke...) Anthony Quinn also co-stars, in yet another broadly played ethnic role. You're better off seeing him play opposite Peck in the vastly superior "Guns Of Navarrone."

I really expected great things from this movie, but it left me sorely disappointed. With such great actors as Peck and Quinn I was sure this flick couldn't miss. Unfortunately the phony bombastic nature of the piece left me cold. Totally unrealistic( as opposed to say Moby Dick)it concentrated on lavish costumes and ornate sets with next to no attention to dialogue or story line. Quinn's character was so obnoxiusely phony and bombastic I thought I was going to be sick, as I love Quinn's work in Barrabas. The phony bravada of almost all the characters was totally unrealistic and made me sick. The ultimate in flowery Hollywood nonesense depending solely on visuals and nothing else. I see now why I never saw this before- it was being hidden for good reason...
