    Captain Courageous (1994)

    Kaj Eriksen stars in Captain Courageous, along with Robert Urich and Kenny Vadar. Kaj's character is Dan Troop.

    There's a great review of Captains Courageous by Lorna Lyons at www.99lives.com/movies/captains.htm. Check it out.

    The movie is based on Nobel Prize-winner Rudyard Kipling's story. Lyons writes,

      "The changing relationship between the captain, his son, and the precocious, rich orphan is portrayed with finesse and sensitivity by the three main actors. Those performances, plus nice cinematography, attention to historical detail, and careful direction by Michael Anderson create an engrossing, high-caliber drama particularly suitable for children. For me, such well-known movies as White Squall and Waterworld pale in comparison with this gem. Captains Courageous premiered on the Family Channel and is well worth seeing on video by people of all ages."

    The Commish (1991)

    Kaj's best known for his starrin' role as David Scali on the long running ABC series "The Commish".
