Friday Flic, Thanksgiving style

1952's Plymouth Adventure made for a great post-Thanksgiving-feast film. It is the story of the Mayflower pilgrims' perilous journey to the New World. Though it is a Hollywood-ized version of the pilgrim's tale, you can still appreciate all that pilgrims went through to make a new life for themselves. The storm scene is particularly well done for the time period. Actors Spencer Tracy, Gene Tierney, and Van Johnson give great performances. I'd don't think I've ever seen Tracy this mean on film!
