Para mí, una de las películas más infravaloradas del maestro Ford, no sólo por el impresionante poder de las imágenes de Toland, que casan perfectamente con ese halo de tristeza y derrota que sobrevuelta todo el film.21 diciembre 2016
"And this is the endless story which Mr. Ford has told with magnificent sharpness. His ship is really made of iron and his actors are really tough. Thomas Mitchell as the roaring, truculent Driscoll; Barry Fitzgerald as the viperish steward, Cocky; John Wayne as the gentle, powerful Olson; Ian Hunter as Smitty, the heartsick, and Wilfred Lawson, Ward Bond, all the rest are truly excellent. Suffice it to say that women only appear briefly in this odyssey, and then exclusively as agents of evil. For "The Long Voyage Home" is a story of men, of eternal suffering in a perilous trade, of life and tragic death in the dirty, heroic little cargo boats that sail the wet seas 'round."
