Sorry, SOLD!

I got this reel -that turned out to be an underwater documentary- inside box 3 of 3 of Marketing Films edition of "The Ten Commandments" (1956). Since the film was sold to me as is, there was not much else I could do.

So I played the film; and I was shocked. It contains extreme graphical violence towards sharks. They are harpooned out of the water onto the deck of a boat and repeteadly hit in the head with a club until they die. All of this is explicitly shown, to the viewers disgust. I could hardly finish watching it. And now I want to get rid of it. I assume it might have some interest for educating conservationists due to the shock value.

Obviously, this documentary is a product of less environmentally friendly decades.

I strongly warn potential buyers about the explicit nature of violence contained in this reel. I would not suggest it being shown to anyone under 18 years of age.
