“The question ‘How was the mentü ship Steered’ bears two meanings: as inference in the sense of ‘faith,’ as well as the relation between the notions of ‘imagery, logos, and action.’ The answer is ‘divine love,’ regardless of the form of the question: the Amentü ship is navigated by the love of God. ” Zeynep Gemuhluoglu, tsa.org: https://www.tsa.org.tr/en/yazi/yazidetay/67/%EF%BF%BD%EF%BF%BDmentu-gemisi-nasil-yurudu (16 Oct 2019).

"By Sea To Florida, 400 ft., 16mm., made by Porter Varney of Bradenton, Fla., is a film record of a sea trip which derives its importance from the fact that the photography and choice of viewpoint are consistently exceptional. Parts of the ship, such as the rigging and cordage, the portholes, the lifeboat davits, etc., were used with rare artistry as aids to composition and effect. An expert use of filters produced exceptionally pleasing and truthful black and white rendition of the sea and the movement and sway of the ship. Continuity was effectually obtained by a shifting of the camera viewpoint, emphasizing the harbor, the high seas and the arrival in Florida. A startling climax to the film was given by a series of shots of an approaching hurricane captured by Mr. Varney 's intrepid camera." Movie Makers, Dec. 1931, 685.
