In this photo-film sea captain from Hamburg tells his story of a winter passage over the North Atlantic, the worst storm in his life-time and the thought that went through his head: “This is it”.
And about an orgy in a brothel, where the crew later spent all their wages after they miraculously had landed in Lisbon.
