Running Time: 1hr 52 mins Black & White

Horror legend John Carradine trades his cape for a rod and reel in this recently unearthed documentary, Fish Story, unseen since its release in 1947! The esteemed Hollywood actor, "an avowed saltwater man", is taken to the Wisconsin woods by reporter ‘Tubby' Toms and ‘Stu' Pritchard, "wizard of the casting rod", to learn the benefits of freshwater fishing! Though Carradine at first complains about swapping his tuxedo for overalls and galoshes, he is soon laughing, joking, and even singing with his new friends. More importantly, he learns the right and wrong ways of casting! By film's end, John vows to "show old man (Clark) Gable how things are done back East" and come back next year with his three sons. At the time of filming, Carradine had recently completed a stint at Universal as Count Dracula in House of Frankenstein (1944) and House of Dracula (1945). In addition to his roles in dozens of classic horror films, the classically-trained actor was a favorite of John Ford's, appearing in Stagecoach (1939) and The Grapes of Wrath (1940). A true oddity shot in gorgeous Kodachrome color, Fish Story is a must-see for fans of the Golden Age of Hollywood, or fishing...or both! Directed by F. Herrick Herrick.
