“Fun, Sun, Sand And Sea,” an episode in Jack Douglas’ weekly America! series, highlights popular places to visit in Florida. The episode opens with Jack Douglas at an amusement park in Florida talking about the attractions in the state. The first stop is St. Augustine (01:26), where viewers see a trolley car moving down a street, a statue of Juan Ponce de Leon, the ruins of the town’s old fort guarding the harbor, and the Fountain of Youth theme park. A man dressed in a colonial Spanish costume (Jimmy Ponce, who claims to descend from the famous Spanish explorer) offers a woman a drink of water. The next stop in the episode is Silver Springs, which has beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters (02:42). Electric glass-bottom boats allow visitors to see beneath the water’s surface. The film shows fish swimming in the water—mainly perch; the boats cruise through jungle where visitors catch glimpses of ducks and turtles. At Tarpon Springs, a man puts on old diving gear to go sponge fishing (04:30). Sponges are washed and rinsed on a ship. Women shop for the natural sponges in the town’s market (05:03). The episode then takes viewers to Chokoloskee Island (06:05). On the small island, Smallwood’s Store is the main attraction—it is an old country store that doubles as the island’s post office. There are many types of antiques and knick-knacks at the store. At Sarasota, viewers get a peek at Horn’s Cars of Yesterday (07:39). A man drives a J-model Duesenberg; the film also shows a 1912 Flanders. The attraction also features a number of music boxes, including the first automatic jukebox (08:48) that was introduced at the World’s Fair in Chicago. The old jukebox moves a metal disc into position and plays a melody. The episode shows footage of an air boat (also known as a fan boat) going through the Everglades (09:55). A man drives a swamp buggy (10:42). The film shows some relics from old campsites of the Seminole Indians. At the Everglades Wonder Gardens (11:38), amplifiers are set up in an alligator pen to amplify their “singing.” Crocodiles fill a nearby enclosure. The episode then takes viewers to Tommy Bartlett’s Deer Farm at Silver Springs (13:10); deer and llamas run into a pen to be fed. Children feed and pet the animals. A duck uses its beak to play a base drum. A goat runs across a suspension bridge that is part of its treehouse. Outside of Miami is the Serpentarium (14:50); here, a man handles a 14-ft king cobra. A girl sits on a Galapagos tortoise, feeding him hibiscus flowers. Nearby is Monkey Jungle (16:00). A chimpanzee plays a drum set; another chimp walks a tightrope while blindfolded. Other monkeys featured at the attraction include a red-faced uakari (also called a bald uakari). At Miami’s Parrot Jungle (17:40) parrots and cockatoos perform for delighted crowds. The episode shows the highlights from the Parrot Jungle’s show that include a parrot playing the shell game and pink flamingos racing around the grounds. The next stop is Caribbean Gardens in Naples (19:50). The episode shows viewers a white peacock displaying its tail feathers and clips from the attraction’s duck “vaudeville” show, where ducks chase each other, fetch rings, and retrieve flowers. One duck plays a toy piano while another dances. An aerial view of Naples shows the private residence of John Slater (22:38), the final stop in the episode. Slater keeps penguins, sea lions, porpoises, and manatees on the property. Slater’s wife has a pet African cheetah. The episode then ends with aerial views of Florida’s beaches and a person parasailing.
