  • Description

    United States of America.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Off the Mississippi Coast, where a two-ton devil fish made a 'shot' well worth getting." Moving shot of small fishing boat passing the camera. High angle shot of some kind of sea creature just below the waves - we see its fins breaking the water. C/U of fisherman lifting out the prongs of a harpoon. Various shots of the "devil fish" and the fisherman throwing out his harpoon. Dramatic music and voiceover "He's got him!" etc. C/U of fisherman tying his rope around a post on the boat, the fish struggles. Shot on the quayside showing the fish being hung up at the side of the jetty. It is a big flat fish like a stingray. Young boys stand and admire the catch.
