Deep Leap

While researching "Moby Dick" for a previous entry, I discovered this shameless reissue promotion involving the all-but-forgotten 1956 film.

After the huge success of Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" in 1975, the whale tale was brought back from the bottom of the cinema to cash in on the phenomenon.

"Before the Shark there was the Whale," spouts the ad copy, but the two stories are essentially unrelated in construction and tone.

What's next?

Before the Feet there was the Gilmore.

Before the Cars there was the Carson.

Before the Borat there was the Borax.
