War. Freedom. Loyalty. Love. Manhood. Ernest Hemingway's most powerful themes are gloriously captured in Islands In The Stream. George C. Scott and director Franklin J.

The film is touching in its details of a father's love- and heroic in its defiance of tyranny. The rich sweep of a literary legend washes over Islands In The Stream
