Down to the Sea in Ships

Cast
Raymond McKee
Marguerite Courtot
Clara Bow

Crew
Directed by Elmer Clifton


Newly mastered from an archival 35mm print, Down to the Sea in Ships is an adventure film that conveys the dangers and excitement aboard the whaling ships of New England. Produced on location by the short-lived Whaling Film Corp., Down to the Sea in Ships is not only an engaging romance and rousing adventure film, it is a fascinating (and remarkably authentic) record of the 19th century whaler.

Raymond McKee stars as an enterprising young businessman who tries to win the heart of a young Quaker (Marguerite Courtot), in spite of her father's objections. In the first substantial role of her career, Clara Bow co-stars as Dot, the young tomboy who stows away on the whaling vessel and is caught in a whirlpool of mutiny and intrigue upon the frigid sea.
