The Long Way Home: One Mom's Journey Home from War
The Long Voyage home is not a typical film from this period. It differs in that it focuses on an ensemble cast instead of on a star. That's common nowadays, but not back then. Ford's Stagecoach, made the previous year, had quite an ensemble cast, but the film was always focused on Ringo and Dallas. Here, John Wayne is just one of the stars. Others are as prominent. The plot is also pretty tenuous and episodic. And, unlike most films of the time, the focus was not on a goal, but just on the events and lives of the seaman aboard the Glencairn.
We see them sail through the war-torn Atlantic, between the U. They have fun, they fight, they talk about home. It's all rather gentle and beautiful, very subtle. The script is great, which is probably due to Eugene O'Neil, for of whose plays this film is based on they are blended together seamlessly.
The actors are marvelous. John Wayne was probably the draw, considering how popular Stagecoach had made him, but, as I said, his role is not out in the front. In fact, he doesn't have many lines. His schtick is that he is a Swede who can't speak English well, so he is generally pretty quiet Wayne can't muster the best Swedish accent, either, so that's kind of a good thing!
He has one great scene where he has some long bits of dialogue. But even without the dialogue, he emotes so well in his face. I knew his character intimately by the end of the film. We don't often think of Wayne as a great actor, but he certainly was. Although The Searchers probably contains his best role, The Long Voyage Home would certainly be worth a major mention when talking about his career.
If you could say that there is a single "star" of this film, that would have to be Greg Tolland. The cinematography is some of the most impressive to be found in the American cinema. He definitely put his heart into this one. The direction is beautiful, artful. To date, it's the only Ford film that made me shed tears.
