So intrigued was I by this 1978 trailer for the Australian film “Blue Fin,” I did some independant research. After all, it seems to combine many elements of other films I love. We’ve got a gruff captain, a rickety old boat, an internal father-son struggle, a huge storm, and lots of tuna. Of course, it also looks so bad that it’s actually good if you know what I mean. I found out it’s based on a popular childrens’ book Down Under. Why couldn’t I have been forced to read this in grade school instead of Johnny Tremain and Little Women? Anybody have “Blue Fin” on Laser Disk? I’d love to borrow it.
