Pure and Simple (1939)

British Pathé

Synopsis: Newsreel footage shows Mrs. King from Wraysbury as she takes her cats fishing in the Thames.

Reality Cat: Mrs. King either owns a lot of cats or feeds the feral population.  Either way, a large number of cats sit around as she uses a rod and reel to catch fish.
