Hiya Monkey Fist,
Thanks for the list of old groovie moovies. I have seen a lot but not all of them. Is there a sea story book list also? I sailed 34 years 3rd Mate to Skipper, coastwise and foreign. I don’t know if you saw this one below, but it was great. Goes well with an old shipmate or two and some cocktails. Really enjoy your site. Keep up the great work.
This movie “Lakeboat" has life on board ship nailed. Charles Durning as Skippee, George Wendt from "Cheers" as the Mate, Peter Falk (who was in the Merchant Marine) and Denis Leary among other recognizables.
Read “This ain’t no Pirates of the Caribbean” under comments. Couldn’t have said it better.
David… a list of sea story books would qualify as a doctoral thesis. At least there’s only been a hundred years of cinema, and just that list has gotten waaaay bigger than I ever expected.
Movies About Ships is expected to top out at 6 weekly installments. Movies About Submarines, another 3, Movies About Sailors is expected to run 4. My summer dance card is booked, baby.
