  • Description

    "Of all the queer ways of snatching a livelihood from this hard-faced world, this is about the queerest!"

    Escapologist in a straitjacket poses for the camera. A crowd of men watch him. He lays down on the ground attached to some kind of rope. He is then dragged along a road behind a moving vehicle. He struggles to free himself from the straitjacket.

    "A 40-mile-an-hour drag while undoing a straight-jacket - the ground must be red-hot!" Various shots of the man being dragged through the street. C/U of the man brushing dust from himself after his stunt.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 658.
