Poor image quality. San Francisco marks the opening of the sea food season with a parade through the city featuring a dead whale that washed up on the beach . The whale is 42-feet and 42 tons of blubber. Establishing shot - There's a dead whale laying on a flat bed and a gal in shorts, rubber booths and a fishing pole trying to give the impression that she caught the whale and reeled it in with her fishing pole. MCUS - Miss Seafood. CUS - Whale's head. MCUS - A dock worker with a cigarette hanging out the side of his mouth patting the whale making the blubber move like Jell-O. CUS - The barnacles on the whale. CUS - Two policemen holding their noses. MCUS - The people of San Francisco make a float around the whale and Miss Seafood sitting on a lawn chair fishing pole still in hand. MCUS - Crowd of people gather to watch this smelly spectacle.
