Where does one "see" this movie? Is it in theaters only? Netflix? Where do I begin the hunt?
After The Good Shepherd I started the Hornblower series (chronological to events) and am onto second book, Lieutenant Hornblower. Not sure he’s quite equal to O’Brien, but I’ll continue. That’s a debate that calls for some grog ;-).Foresters Hornblower series is at least the equal of O’Brien, IMHO. Forgot he also wrote the African Queen, going to have to re read that. Got to visit the HMS Victory when in England twenty years ago. The B&B we were staying at had a son who was an officer on the Victory, they still take her out on special occasions.

I visit the old ships too, so far Balclutha in SF and Constitution in Boston. One day I’ll visit England.
Follow up: Here’s a historic pic of Lake Union before they put the center span in the Aurora Bridge.

I really doubt its been out for quite a while. Its still manned and an active posting and kept up pretty well but theres no way they'd risk taking it out into the Solent and risk another Mary Rose event. One time the local news did a story on April 1st that it was going to lead an armada of tall ships down the Solent but thats about as close as it got. If it was seaworthy I'm sure they would have moved it during the second world war when the luftwaffe dropped a 500lb bomb on it that did some damage and the dockyards there were regularly targeted.Victory, they still take her out on special occasions
I dropped my satellite service a couple of years ago. The beauty of streaming services is no long term contracts. When Apple TV+ gets enough shows that I want to see I'll sign up for a month, pay the $4.99, watch them and then cancel until they have another batch that I want to see. Cancel culture that I can get behind.I refuse to pay for another streaming service, although I believe it’s the future. Already have Dish, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
