Daddy Dearest

Was glad to tackle another film from my DVR (compliments to TCM) as I've been working to clear the entire hard drive so I can exchange my faulty cable box. Slow going but was able to finally see the remarkable Strange Cargo (1940) featuring a sexy Joan Crawford and the wiling Clark Gable. Largely this is a prison break film that eventually becomes a lost at sea film. The set-up sequences are quite excellent but the real heart of the film is dialogue and interaction between prisoners & Crawford on the high seas. It's then that this movie really becomes a character study of the human condition. Definitely worth watching and I hope to see this again someday.
