If you like a good treasure hunt yarn complete with wild New Gunea Natives throwing spears and tying up the heroine, nefarious Brits, heroic Yanks and nefarious Yanks check out Crosswinds (1951) - a yankee schooner captain
comes to New Ginuea in search of work for the boat, "She's my home, my job and my mistress all wrapped into one package." - Heroine (slighlty dmaged of course) "what are you running away from?" - "I'm not running away. I just dont live my life in all the hubub stopping at red lights and waiting for green lights." - "see? You are running away. From society and all its rules" - LOL. The dialog sounds a lot less cheesy coming from the big screen
Watched "Dove" - worth a look but pretty naive and highly innacurate. Makes up for it with cool sailing scenes, a couple of nice storms and a dismasting
scene. There are only two cats in the movie
. I think because Gregory Peck didn't want Graham to look like a weird loner cat-boy, which he probabnly was. They did touch a couple of times on his psychosis a bit. Its also a good answer for how small a boat can I go in, even if the boat in the film is a Ranger
23 - a lot of scenes look like an advert. And after a total rebuild
of the boat it has the exact same sails
. Ho hum...
