  • Short Summary

    Stunt involving an American Indian being suspended from a plane by his long hair.

  • Description

    Chief White Eagle - the man with the world's strongest head of hair has his hair tied to a piece of rope. Two men standing on oil drums with a pole between them lift Chief White Eagle off the ground by his hair. C/U of the Chief as he dangles from the pole by his hair. The Chief jumps on to the wing of a biplane. Air to air shots of him high above the ground attaching himself to the wheels of the plane by his hair. He dangles and blow a kiss with cupped fingers (like the gesture a chef makes when tasting his own cooking). Then on the ground he combs his hair.

    Was probably an item in Pathe Pictorial issue 419.

    Note: this is a more complete version of "American Indian Hanging by Hair from Aircraft" on EP006.
