Horatio Hornblower: The Original Adventures

He is the ultimate high-seas hero: a man of unshakable courage, unwavering principles, and extraordinary skill. Joining the Royal Navy at the outset of the bloody Napoleonic Wars, Horatio Hornblower rises quickly from raw recruit to seasoned sailor, and his exploits become the stuff of legend.

A&E's lavish adaptations of C.S. Forester's classic novels charmed millions of viewers with their swashbuckling action, broadside battles, and below-decks intrigue. This set brings together two feature-length chapters in the Emmy®-winning Hornblower saga: The Duel and The Fire Ships.

Ioan Gruffudd (The Fantastic Four, Titanic) gives a star-making performance as the dashing hero, and the stellar supporting cast includes Robert Lindsay (Me & My Girl), Jamie Bamber (Band of Brothers), and Paul Copley (Queer as Folk).
