VIKING, the (1931)
Charles Starrett stars as Luke Oarum, a man that everyone
considers a failure because of his family history. To prove
himself to Mary Jo, the woman he loves, he signs up for
one of the most dangerous jobs in the world...
the Newfoundland seal hunt.
Not only must he face the perils of the sea, but also the
dangerous Jed Nelson, who is also in love with Mary Jo and
would prefer Luke shamed or even dead!
Originally filmed on location in Newfoundland, this release
contains a foreword by Sir Wilfred Grenfell and also features
Captain Bob Bartlett as the captain of the sealing vessel.
This film features some of the all time greatest footage of the
seal hunting industry. This release comes from the very finest
restored 35mm material obtained from the National Archives
of Canada and it is just beautiful quality!
