After being discredited as a coward, a 19th century seaman (Peter O'Toole) lives for only one purpose: to redeem himself. Based on Joseph Conrad's novel written in 1900.
After the film's tepid reception, especially for his own starring performance, a once-enthusiastic Peter O'Toole declared, "It was a mistake and I made the mistake because I was conservative and played safe. And that way lies failure".
