In 1929, when the Conservatives were swept from power in the general elections, Churchill believed his political career was at an end. He seized the opportunity for a visit to the United States, and during his California sojourn (which included a visit to a movie studio), he was invited to try the marlin fishing at Catalina Island. The results are depicted here: the future Prime Minister, fishing rod in hand, in a natty three-piece suit, bowtie and cap, delicately holding a fin of an enormous Marlin, flanked by Captain Monte Foster and Ben R. Meyer. Printed inscriptions note that the fish was landed in only 20 minutes. " /> CHURCHILL, Winston S. (1874-1965).
