Dark Passage Beneath the Sea

When the sea spewed a briny new threat
Film noir he-men grew shiny with sweat
All their guns couldn't hit
The big undersea "it"
And they'd need a strong line and a net.

This mash-up was inspired by two films which both use the Golden Gate Bridge. Pictured are Humphrey Bogart and Clifton Young in Dark Passage (Delmer Daves; 1947), and a bit of Ray Harryhausen's monstrous stop-motion mollusk in It Came from Beneath the Sea (Robert Gordon; 1955).
