Old sailing movie

A few years ago someone posted a link to an old home made movie of a guy sailing (crewing) on a large commercial sailing vessel (tall ship) around cape horn. I believe the movie was filmed in the 30's/40's? I can't find it now. Any ideas? I believe the movie was around 45-60 minutes in length.

Thanks, Eric

Don't know if this is it, but it was easy to find...

Possibly. It was an online video though.

After some additional research, it seems that is the video, but it is no longer free online. Thanks for the help

I think you may be referring to Alan Villiers’ "Around the Horn in a Square-Rigger" (1933). I believe this film was restored by the South Street Seaport in New York and is available in video format. Fandor - Film: Around the Horn in a Square Rigger

I think it was me who linked to that movie, certainly its a favourite of mine. I found it on YouTube but i'm not finding it now. Maybe it has been removed.
