A Thrilling Fight With A Blue Shark (continued)
Those who watch this exciting battle in the submarine picture may well know that here was an example of daring which has never been approached in the history of film production.
“I wasn't so much afraid of the shark as I was of a miserable fish about a yard long and shaped like a pike, that they call a barracuda. Before I made my dive," said Williamson, “I made certain there were none of those devils present, and I scouted around underneath the barge to see if I could see any of them. When they are hungry their bodies are covered with stripes. The natives call them hunger stripes. Their lips curl back like a snarling dog's, over big strong teeth."
This thrilling incident brings to a close the wonderful story of how the sea has given up its secrets, and has at last bowed to the restless genius of man.
