Movie Info

This full-blooded saga of the 19th-century whaling industry focuses on tough old salt Captain Bering Joy and his grandson Jed. Anxious to embark upon a life on the sea, Jed aligns himself with Joy's first mate. The captain disdainfully regards Dan as one of the inferior "new breed" of whalers.more

Audience Reviews for Down to the Sea in Ships

2nd best movie about whaling behind Moby Dick (1955). Lionel Barrymore is as close to a real sea captain as I've seen. I still don't know how they made the Amazing Ice burg collision.
