Description

  • An alien from space lands in St. Petersburg Beach and assumes the form of a kitten. In its travels the alien sees beaches, homes, water skiers, a marina, Criswell's Money Museum, the London Wax Museum, the Aquatarium, the fishing pier, and fishing party boats. The alien then becomes a pelican, gets a free meal, and flies around to see aerials of the area. The community center and an art show at the Suntan Art Center are shown. Fort DeSoto Park, motels, restaurants, golf, and more boating are next, with the filmmaker, Bill Beckley, driving a powerboat. The alien decides to stay and assumes the form of a porpoise at the Aquatarium. This film was produced by Bill Beckley for the Florida Development Commission and the St. Petersburg Beach Chamber of Commerce.
