The Naked Sea was one of the best of the many feature-length documentaries distributed by RKO Radio in the mid-1950s. Narrated by William Conrad, the films follows the four-month, 15,000 mile journey of the tuna clipper Star Kist. As the fishermen go about their appointed tasks, the camera soaks in a lot of local color, including a raging South American hurricane and the eruption of a Galapagos Islands volcano. Naked Sea was photographed and directed by Allen H. Miner, later a prolific TV helmsman. The film was originally shot in 16 millimeter, then blown up to 35 millimeter (with no loss of quality) for theatrical distribution.
