It's the mid-nineteenth century. The neighboring Shore and Crowninshield families of the American east coast have a long tradition of seafaring. Of Jeremiah Shore's four sons, the only one not at sea is the youngest, Joel Shore, solely because of his age. Joel has had a long friendship with the Crowninshield's daughter, Priscilla Crowninshield, that friendship which is now on the brink of romantic love as they become of age, although this new-found love is unspoken on both sides. Joel hopes that when his eldest brother, Mark Shore, captain of the Nathan Ross, returns home from his latest voyage, he will allow Joel to sail with him. Although Mark still sees Joel as the "youngin'" of the family, Joel, through slightly underhanded means, is able to convince Mark that he is man enough to become a sailor.

Great sailing ship in storm sequence good feel fast paced.
"Taste the iron, you crummy lubbers!" as the final ship board fight begins This film moves along plot wise, They, director and production team, really worked on this one, with tons of scene set-ups and good close ups with great smooth editing throughout, that add to feeling of story line rather than being so accurate to the master shot. Check out the ship, rigging and attire: 19th century 3 master and rope laden, so real all the way throughout the film. Great ship at sea storm sequences is great action, making it one for a highlite reel of 20's great movie sequences of action. I was getting seasick. Yes other reviews posted here are quite accurate: acting comments & story from book, plot holes (funny comment sinking & not leaving port) , terrible print (TCM Aug/31 showing) yes a bit like watching thru a porthole in storm, but only adds authenticity to date of making for me, etc. Piano scoring intelligent but a bit relentless. But if you enjoy this sort of realness, this movie is a gem.
