Shot in 1946 and released in 1949, this industrial film (sponsored by The Ford Motor Company), depicts the lives of the people who inhabit our humble Massachusetts fishing community. The film shows the home life, a deep-sea fishing trip, a storm at sea, and the yearly observance of the feast of St. Peter, patron saint of fishermen. This is the best version of this 22-minute documentary available, rescued for the Cape Ann Cinema & Stage from a dumpster of a Pittsburgh public school by Skip Elsenheimer of AV Geeks.
