Naval Apprentices at Sail Drill on Historic Ship 'Constellation' (1900)

This Edison feature was shot on November 22, 1900 in Newport, RI. What we basically see is the ship Constellation having its sails raised and lowered by naval cadets. Yes, that's pretty much all that happens for two-minutes but I think history buffs are going to get a real kick out of seeing this famous ship in action. I'd say that they're going to be the main ones who are entertained by this but those who enjoy ships and sailing will probably enjoy look at this old film. There's certainly no action going on and in fact, very little does happen here so it's probably a good bet that modern viewers and even fans of these old movies aren't going to take much from this. The print condition is in very good shape allowing one to clearly see what's going on and thankfully it's also shot extremely well.
