  • Description

    "Aquaplaning still has its fascination these days - especially to a youngster of six years." L/S of a motor boat approaching the camera. It tows behind it a man and a child who stand on an aquaplane board. Various shots of the boat towing the two along. M/S of the man standing on the board with the child standing on his shoulders. They waver around but manage to stay upright.

    M/S of the child climbing up onto his father's hip and balancing there holding on with only one hand. The child then stands on one leg supported by the father. "Another difficult stunt, with the aid of a chair..." Child does a headstand on a chair balanced on the front of the aquaplane board. "Landing the goods." Father and child approach the docks and grab on as they get close. They climb up onto the boardwalk.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 651.

    Note: this is quite cute but unfortunately the image quality is rather poor.
