  • Short Summary

    Silly film showing a man who is having a bath suspended below a hot air balloon!

  • Description

    "We've heard about the man who sang in his bath - here's the fellow who ballooned in his bath!"

    M/S of a man getting into a bath in the open air. Several bystanders watch the action. The bath is lifted into the air by a hot air balloon. The bath is lifted high in the air by the balloon. There is an American flag attached. We see how precariously placed the cameraman is - inside the strings of the balloon. The man waves from his bath.

    Shot from the cameraman's perspective of the man in his bath. We then see a view from above the cameraman (who is taking this shot then?) as he films the man. The man in the bath flicks water over the side of the bath. He looks up at the camera. L/S of the balloon. The balloon goes back to earth.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 700.
