July 31, 1939: Nuestro Pueblo visits San Pedro and encounters an irascible lighthouse keeper, Irving Conklin. "Some idiot will write a story with a lighthouse in it," Conklin says of filmmakers. "It doesn't matter if the lighthouse is in the Mediterranean or in Siberia. Down they will come and shoot ours."
