As far as scenes go, how about the sailing scene from Sleeping with the Enemy?

a couple you missed

Swiss Family Robinson, Against All Flags, Anne of the Indies, The Black Swan,
Shipwrecked, Dangerous Passage, Hell Ship Mutiny, Bird of Paradise, Drum-the movie, Voyage of the Yes.

More movies to add to the list

I did not see "Crosswinds" or Roy Disney's "Morning Light", both good sailing movies.... all of these movies help me get thru the winter season.... so long and yet here before we are ready!

I was wondering why Morning Light wasn't on the list also until I noticed the original post was from 2007, before ML was released.

Since some documentaries have been included, I thought I'd give a mention for American Sailors. Its about the Chicago-Mackinac race and covers several participant boats.

Interesting that metal boats can burn to the water line - (in the movie the bad guys say they're going to scuttle the boat, not blow it up). Kinda wish the loco guy would have won the knife fight.

I think I'd add Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to the list before the Pirates of the Caribbean - that scene where he sails into the dock with his sails up under water ruined it for me.

Gotta add Batman (1966) - it has a lot of nautical material in it, even a unique coordinate system where he gives the position of the submarine in batlongitude and batlatitude, which uses numbers, letters and dashes. And let's not forget "Salt and corrosion - the infamous old enemies of the crimefighter."

We watched a documentary we got from our local library called Tall Ship: High Sea Adventure about cadets training on the Danmark. Shows and interviews young cadets who sail from Denmark to the States and back. It has footage of them climbing out on the spars way up above the deck to reef the sails.

Did anyone mention Geraldo's film about his sail around the world in his boat? I think it was done about 10 to 15 years ago, but not a great film. Don't remember the name of the boat or of the film.

Thank you for bringing up Crosswinds. With all these sailors I figured it would be on the first page of this thread. Watched it two weeks ago because my wife refused to let me watch Waterworld again.

Also no one mentioned The Wake Of the Red Witch. Can't go wrong with the Duke. John Wayne was also a avid boater. Had a close friend that worked on his yacht.
