  • Short Summary

    Decomposed short item showing a man who catches crawfish in the United States.

  • Description

    I would say that this material is probably unusable due to evidence of nitrate decomposition from original neg.

    No title. "Here's "Crawfish" Pete the head man of all "craw-dabbers" - Willamette River, Oregon." C/U of elderly man smoking a pipe as he rows a small boat. M/S of the boat as it moves away from the camera. "He's a curious fellow with a curious job." C/U of the man as he rows. L/S of him standing on the back of the boat throwing in crawfish pots. "But a dollar a dozen for these fresh water lobsters -- is a business!" Box of crawfish is poured onto the bottom of the boat. C/U of the crawfish.

    Note: was a blue tinted print originally - decomposing and safety neg made 15/11/98.

    Part of a "Walter Futter's Curiosities" film - presumably bought in by Pathe for reuse.

    Safety print only.
