Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N is a 1951 British-American naval war film in Technicolor from Warner Brothers, directed by Raoul Walsh. The film is based on three of C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower novels: The Happy Return (Beat to Quarters in the United States), A Ship of the Line, and Flying Colors, published between 1937 and 1967. Forester is credited with the screen adaptation. In 1807, during the Napoleonic Wars, Royal Navy Captain Horatio Hornblower commands the 38-gun frigate HMS Lydia on a secret mission to Central America. He is to provide arms and support to Don Julian Alvarado, who calls himself El Supremo (The Almighty), in his rebellion against Spain, an ally of Britain's enemy France.
