Comic Scene on Board Ship

A dispute on the ocean waves

Comedy 1898 1 mins Silent


Three men are seen involved in an argument on the upper deck of a ship. Two start boxing while the other holds their coats. This amateur film was shot by Irishman Robert Mitchel on his way to South Africa in 1898. He staged the scene reasonably effectively - but was less successful in directing his actors to keep within the frame.
