Horatio Hornblower begins his naval career, but a deadly feud with a despicable mate is causing complications.
Ian Gruffudd (Mr. Midshipman Horatio Hornblower), playing a 17 year old at the films start was 25 at the time of filming.
Captain Sir Edward Pellew:
The old adversary may wear a new face, but whatever mask he chooses to hide behind, a Frenchman is still a Frenchman and we will beat him as we always have beaten him!
When they are supposed to be stranded in a ship's boat in the Atlantic, out of sight of France, the coast is plainly visible behind the French captain of the Marie Galante when he and Hornblower stand-off with guns just before the Indefatigable is sighted.
