  • Description

    Item title reads: " Up The Pole! And dare devil Kelly says he does it because he likes it!"

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    M/S as the two men shake hands. The biplane is seen taking off. It has a mast on the top.
    Intertitle reads: "Pilot M. Merrill agrees to fly the mast rigged plane. No traffic to bother this breezy rubberneck"
    Fantastic air to air shots of the plane flying high over New York, with the buildings below, and Kelly starting to climb up the pole. He gets to the top and holds on with just one hand and one leg, and waves at the camera.

    Note: Item title missing. Amazing and thrilling stunt.
