It's no secret that the cinema about the sea was especially difficultshoot in the first half of the twentieth century. Nevertheless, directors and cameramen brilliantly coped with the task, transferring to the dry part of the scenes on the deck. Quality of films from this did not suffer at all.

Captain Kidd, Angelica, Pippi Longstocking,Lieutenant Hornblower (see below) - all these are world-famous characters, about which a lot is written and filmed.
