This 13 minute documentary short is found on the DVD : "The Long Voyage Home" (1940), directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne.
The Araner was Admiral Ford's personal vessel and home away from home.
I recently researched a school paper on John Ford. Thus, I really enjoyed this short documentary. It was really neat to hear the voices of Ford and his wife, Mary. Especially when they spoke about doing under cover work for the United States government while sailing to Mexico on the Araner.
It is special features like this that make DVD collecting fun.
In "The Long Voyage Home" (1940), look for Barry Fitzgerald and Arthur Shields. They are real life brothers and Ford uses them in several of his movies, including "The Quiet Man" (1952).
