The Yankee Clipper

1927 NR

Film giants D.W. Griffith and Cecil B. DeMille join forces for this silent saga of America's maritime rivalry with the British. Bostonian Hal Winslow (William Boyd) captains the title ship in a race against a British vessel for China's tea route to America. His journey home from Asia is challenged by storms, a dwindling water supply, a fearful crew and two unexpected passengers (Elinor Fair and John Miljan) demanding to be put off.
