Blue Water, White Death is a 1971 documentary written by Peter Gimbel and directed by Gimbel and James Lipscomb. This is a true-life adventure that takes place before computers and other diving electronics and before much was known about life under the ocean. Peter Gimbel invites a photographer (Stan Waterman), a couple who spear fish and dive (Valerie and Ron Taylor) and a folk singer along on a journey to find and film the great white shark. Wally King narrates this piece, and other cast members include Tom Chapin, Phil Clarkson, Stuart Cody and Peter Lake. Their voyage takes them more than 12,000 miles, nine months, across open water and involves many dangers. The first attempt in capturing the great white on film is made outside Durban, South Africa, amidst the whale harpooning grounds. The divers swim right in the middle of hundreds of feeding white-tip and blue sharks that are feeding on dead whale carcasses and get great footage of the frenzy. They later visit a shipwreck 180 feet below the Indian Ocean surface. Still later, they take on Dangerous Reef in Southern Australia. There, Rodney Fox tells his story about facing a great white attack and surviving. This film has beautiful underwater footage and unique shots of the fearsome predator, the great white.moreless
