The Yankee ClipperDVD
One of the best movies that the silent era has to offer, The Yankee Clipper (1927) stars William Boyd as a relative of a prominent Boston shipbuilding family. In an attempt to control China's tea trade, he helms the Yankee Clipper in a race against a British boat. Boyds real-life wife, Elinor Fair, costars in the movie, which was filmed entirely on a clipper ship and features an exciting, sexually charged tale of lust, greed and villiany.
