I started watching this, first time I have seen it, as I thought it was just about a bunch of convicts on a ship heading for Van Demiens Land, now Australia. I had previously seen the Alan Ladd film Two Years Before the Mast and thought it would be similar, so wrong I was. This is truly a classic and if made again today I am sure would be a box office hit. It had a great cast of Australian, English and one American, Anthony Perkins. There was action, violence, drama, pathos, everything to make a great classic story. I gave this a 10 rating. Many would say it's not worth that by the standards of movies made today but this truly is in the realm of the classics. Try a find it if you can and watch the whole 5 hours approx. I saw it on a internet site called Kanopy which is a site you can connect to through your local library. I believe this is world wide.i
