  • Description

    Full titles read: "Defying death! Meet Monsieur Ringen - the latest death-defyer. M. Ringen's speciality is diving from a height of 120 feet into a small tank, only 6 feet deep - a world's record."

    France.

    Various shots of a huge crowd watching as Monsieur Ringen climbs to the top of a very high ladder. He stands on a tiny platform at the top of the ladder; L/S of the tank below - it is a very long way down! Ringen steps backwards off the platform and falls into the tank with a huge splash; the crowd applauds. Reverse shot of Ringen leaping back up to the ladder then coming down again in slow motion. He gets out of the tank and bows to the crowd.
