    The heroic story of the men on the U.S.S. San Pablo
    Certificate: PG-13
    Running Time: 179 mins
    Retail Price: $24.98
    Release Date:

    The Sand Pebbles tells many stories. It`s the story of China, a slumbering giant that rouses itself to the cries of its people - and of the Americans who are caught in its bloody awakening. It`s the story of Frenchy (Richard Attenborough), a crewman on the U.S.S. San Pablo who kidnaps his Chinese bride from the auction block. Most of all, it`s the story of Jake Holman (Steve McQueen), a sailor who has given up trying to make peace with anything - including himself. Nominated for nine Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Actor for McQueen, The Sand Pebbles blends explosive action with stirring drama and romance to form "engrossing entertainment of a special and memorable sort." (The Hollywood Reporter)
