Aye Calypso

The little ship that carried Jacques Cousteau around the world 15 times and became a star in its own right is rotting away in a La Rochelle shipyard. The explorer’s son and his second wife are battling their way through the courts to see who gets to exploit the Calypso name in the future.

There are no Cousteau DVDs readily available on Amazon, but you could always buy The Life Aquatic, an odd little pastiche of the explorer’s life.
