The Sailor's Return Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Based on a novel by [[Performer~P309701~David Garnett~davidgarnett]], Sailor's Return is a British Victorian-era domestic drama, with plenty of domesticity and precious little drama. [[Performer~P5148~Tom Bell~tombell]] stars as a sailor who returns to his home village with his new bride (Shope Soleinde). The bride is black; the village is aghast. Struggling against the prejudice of the townsfolk and his own doubts about the wisdom of his union, Bell opens a pub. No distributor wanted to have anything to do with Sailor's Return, a dilemma due less to the film's subject matter than to its production ineptitudes. The film finally got its first showing on British television, two years after its completion. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
