I loved director John Sturges' and Spencer Tracy's collaboration three years previous to this, "Bad Day at Black Rock". This piece was wonderful -- as a sedative. Just like watching paint dry. Apparently even Hemingway himself, who was personally involved in the production, was disappointed with it. Stock wildlife footage, rubber marlin... Terrible movie. Should've never been attempted.

This is another Hemingway oeuvre that I decided to watch instead of read, although the book itself is quite short. And again, I'm happy that I didn't read the book and only wasted a couple of hours watching the movie. This poor old man cannot catch a fish, and when he does- it almost kills him! All work and no reward, not my kind of story. For those who are students of the futility of life, you might like this movie.
