TCM's Silent Sunday: "Captain Salvation"

The 1927 film with Lars Hanson will be shown Sunday night. I went looking on YouTube to see if the film was also available there, but could only find clips of the film to watch today. HOWEVER; at Youtube, I found that the full-length HD version is scheduled to be released on YouTube on 2/3/2017. When I clicked on the link, it says, "Watch the live stream in 12 days."

Wouldn't it be nice if TCM broadcasts the latest version tomorrow night.

I DVR'd this movie and only got around to seeing it in the last week or so. I have to admit I really, really liked it, to the point where I fully admit to being pretty misty-eyed at the end. Pauline Starke was terrific. :)

The film often runs on TCM, this isn't it's first airing.

Yes, but like so many recent showings on TCM, the picture quality is improved over earlier broadcasts.

YouTube is offering this HD quality video as a streaming service on a certain day, but it's not something I know how to do.

Superb movie.... has anyone else ever read the original novel? It's quite different from what they filmed.

I haven't, but the plot does sound interesting and somewhat familiar, even if it's a completely different story.

Assuming you've read it, what did you think?

It's available at Amazon for around $10.00.

I don't want to engage is any spoilers, but Lars Hanson's captain is a far less sympathetic character, Pauline Starke's character is far more ruthless towards him and has less to do in general. On the other hand, Marceline Day's character has more to do, while the entire section involving Ernest Torrance and his ship simply never happens, nor does he appear. Instead the climax involves surviving the aftermath of a shipwreck, actually the second one in the narrative.
