The G E Taylor film, Loch Ness, 1938.
On May 29th, 1938, a South African tourist, GE Taylor, scored another film. It is the first color film of the Loch Ness monster . Taylor used a 16mm camera . At that time, when interviewed by newspapers , Taylor said:
" It was a very long and rounded body ending in a long neck that was about the only thing that stuck out , the rest of the body was about half a meter below the surface. Its color was a very dark almost black gray, was moving near the shore opposite Foyers and could see at a distance of about 200 meters. This was approximately 12:00 noon."
Then he went to find one of his friends and went to see the monster was still in the lake, even closer than before 150 meters away. Taylor resumed his camera and filmed again.
The entire film was sent to the writer Maurice Burton , who in turn referred it to the United Kyndom National Institute of Oceanography (now Southampton Oceanographic Centre) which found that it was " an inanimate object among many floating in the lake."
One of the few people who has seen the movie, and also have it in custody, is Maurice Burton. Unfortunately Burton has not let anyone analyze it which reduces its credibility .
Burton posted a picture on his book "The Elusive Monster" , before he retired . Dr. Roy P Mackall said that the photo was a "positive test " according to Janet and Colin Bord
