John Paul Jones

The fierce battle has taken a grim toll. Lashed to a British man-of-war, the fledging Continental Navy's Bonhomme Richard is sinking and half its crew is lost.

        Comments about John Paul Jones:

        Classic hollywood historical adventure with a lot less re-writing history than most (anyone who uses movies to teach history is asking for trouble). I saw this as a kid when it hit the theaters and I've been waiting for a DVD for years. My two Main criticisms are (extremely) minor. 1. John Paul Jones was much shorter than Robert Stack. 2. The DVD cover art is tacky and not representative of the film.

        Too slow; acting wooden

            Comments about John Paul Jones:

            John Farrow was a poor choice as director. He seemed to have no idea how to achieve narrative drive. Robert Stack mumbles a lot except when he's being stoic and pious and speechifying. His expression never changes. Erin O'Brien can't act. Marisa Pavan is a little better. The movie is beautifully filmed but all the characters just seem to go through the motions, even in the climactic ship battle. No excitement there at all.
