| Good Tough Adventure
Based on a book by B. Traven, author of "The Treasure of Sierra Madre."

The film is well acted, vividly photographed and distinctly better than we have any right to expect.

It depicts a fugitive sailor's time on a tramp steamer, with lots of tough guys, much grubby detail, a catastrophe and an amazing final image that will stay with you long after you've forgotten the rest of the film. Very worthwhile.

When will German DVD makers get smart and put English and French subtitles on their discs? A little extra expense would give them a worldwide clientele instead of just selling to two countries.
