  • Description

    Title reads: "CAUGHT BY THE CAMERA".

    Various shots of a man climbing up a city building without apparatus; commentator refers to him as a human fly. It looks like a city in Spain or Italy. He climbs right to the top of a dome, then lies on his stomach on the highest tip and makes actions with his arms and legs, as if swimming.

    Several shots of a group of men pulling a glider up the Jungfrau mountain in Switzerland. Once they are high up on the mountain, the pilot gets in and flies off, by means of a huge catapult, held by the other men.
