Pirates, merchant seamen and sometimes incongruously glamorous island princesses in tight sarongs offer the landlubber a taste of salt-sea air and nautical adventure. Ocean-based films span decades, genres and hemispheres, from “exotic” tropical-romantic kitsch to docudrama tales of seal-hunting survival in the frequently frozen North.
