"Captains Courageous"
Spencer Tracy Week! continues at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing Victor Fleming's 1937 tearjerker "Captains Courageous," starring Tracy as fisherman Manuel and young Freddie Bartholomew as the spoiled ward aboard a New England cod boat.

Rudyard Kipling's 1897 novel gets the MGM treatment and becomes a parable of fatherly responsibility, full of director Victor Fleming's trademark Christian symbolism. Spencer Tracy gets his first solo shot at stardom as Portuguese fisherman Manuel, a minor character in the book. Jack Conway directed two weeks when Fleming fell ill. This is the kiddie matinee reissue trailer from the sixties.
