A film about Sir Ernest Shackleton's last expedition to Antarctica. Film slate says that a "porpoise" moves up and down in front of ship Quest. The porpoise on the deck after being caught. A sailor grabs a pet cat and drops it onto the porpoise, and it jumps off immediately as the men laugh. Men string up the porpoise and hoist it so it hangs above the deck. (Note: The nose shape and dorsal fin shape indicate that this may be a dolphin, not a porpoise).
