Bland Smith Short

Fish Tales (1954)

** (out of 4)

Bland Pete Smith short has the benefit of being in Technicolor but it offers little else. Basically we get what the title says as we hear about three different fish tales. The first deals with a boy using a balloon to catch fish. The second has a young kid tying his line to his dog's tail. The third story features Ernie St. Claire as he shows how to catch salmon and his method includes going with the fish down dangerous streams. Thankfully this short just runs for 9-minutes and even that seems a bit too long. The biggest problem is that this short just really doesn't offer anything overly interesting. Yes, the first two stories are mildly cute but that's it. The third story takes up about six-minutes of the running time and it's just a complete dud. There's nothing interesting about this person and his adventure down stream is just boring. Even Smith's narration really doesn't add any life.
