The Long Voyage Home is a 1940 American drama film directed by John Ford. The hard-living, international crew of a British merchant ship become unnerved as they cross the Atlantic during the first year of World War II. Suspicions mount when the ship takes on explosives, but loss of crew members during stormy seas, German attacks, and impressment force the crew to come together and make it home. The film was adapted by Dudley Nichols from the plays The Moon of the CaribbeesIn the ZoneBound East for Cardiff, and The Long Voyage Home by Eugene O'Neill. The original plays by Eugene O'Neill were written around the time of World War I and were among his earlier plays. Ford set the story for the motion picture, however, during the early days of World War II.
