  • Short Summary

    A shark beaches itself at Brighton, the locals show the dead fish to the Pathe cameras!

  • Description

    Brighton, Sussex.

    Intertitle: "A Finny Visitor. Huge Whale Thrasher succumbs to charms of famous sea side resort".

    M/S of crowd of people, mainly men in flat caps, standing around a dead shark (looks like a basking shark, the intertitle describing it as a whale is gross exaggeration!). Some of the men try and lift the shark to show its belly to the camera, it is lying in a sticky black pool - probably its own blood (yuk!).
