Renowned aquatic adventurer and filmmaker Peter Gimbel spent nine months at sea hunting for a dangerous, elusive quarry and finally captured the first footage of &NFi;Carcharodon carcharias&NFi_; -- aka the great white shark -- in this 1971 documentary. Cameras follow Gimbel and crew as they tag along with whaling vessels in South Africa and explore shipwrecks in Sri Lanka before spotting the deadly predator in Australian waters.
