  • Short Summary

    A man and then a woman grapple with alligators, catching and holding them.

  • Description

    "Years ago Eve would scarcely have thought of trying this - " M/S of a man waist deep in a river grappling with an alligator. He lifts it out of the water holding its jaws shut. A small boat approaches. The alligator is put into the boat and its captor climbs in after it. "Today, however, even wrestling with an alligator isn't beyond the modern Miss!" A woman in a swimsuit wades into a shallow pool full of alligators. The woman grapples with one of the alligators. "Bagging your bag before it's bagged!" She holds the alligator up to the camera and taps it on the nose.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 585.

    Safety copy exists.
