    Background: Much curiosity was stimulated among crowds lining the banks of Venice's Grand Canal, Mar 12, when a midget submarine - 50 feet long and 15 tons in weight - was lowered from an Italian merchant vessel, and cruised up the canal under its own steam before anchoring by St. Mark's Square with the famous Ducal Palace as background.

    Making a strange contrast to neighbouring gondolas, the submarine is to be used for a film being made in Venice.
