Favorite or not so favorite Sailing, sailing related, or had a scene or two on a boat
 
In the spirit of Books related to sailing, list movies you've seen or know about.

I can recall seeing:

White Squall
Mutiny on the Bounty
Master and Commander
I missed Morning Light - waiting for DVD.

With sailing in the movie, but not about sailing:

No Way Out - they rented what I took to be a Newport 27 or 30 in the Chesapeake.

Thomas Crown Affair (w/Pierce Brosnan).

Had a great scene of huge racing cats...and one going over.

Moby Dick

The original Captains Courageous with Spencer Tracy. One of the best movies ever, sailing or not. It has great footage of Grand Banks fishing schooners racing.

Anybody ever notice, in Master and Commander, after Jack orders the ship to sail due south, and the scene changes to show the Surprise with snow and ice on her, the camera pans around the bow to port, and there is some poor bastard crapping in the head? I LOVE that detail!! Who thought of doing that? What a riot!
