The Old Man and the Sea

1958 Rated NR 1hr 26m

Oscar nominee Spencer Tracy stars in this adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novella, a classic tale of man vs. nature, directed by John Sturges. After three months without a catch, an aging Cuban angler hooks a giant marlin far off the coast. For two days, the great fish tows the boat, stirring deep compassion in his captor. The exhausted fisherman finally lands his catch, fighting off bloodthirsty sharks as he sails back to shore.
