In this entry from the John Nesbitt's "Passing Parade" series, the "Mary Celeste" sails from Nrw York on November 7, 1872, with a full crew, including the captain's wife, which was cause for uneasiness among the superstitious sailors. Fourteen days later the ship is found by the "Barkentine Dia Gratia" with sails set, but not a sign of life. Food is still warn in the galley, there is no evidence of a mutiny or struggle, the cargo is intact and one longboat is still lashed to the deck. A Maritime Court advances several theories, but none that stand up when examined closely. Written by

Interesting and mildly amusing short film from director Jacques Tourneur about the mystery surrounding the Mary Celeste, which was a ship found in 1872 without a trace of its crew. Hammer's film The Phantom Ship did a better job at showing one possibility of what might have happened but this film is pretty good. It shows two different things that might have happened to the crew but the too cheerful narration doesn't help the subject matter.
This one here shows up on Turner Classic Movies a couple times each year so keep your eyes open.
