  • Description

    Titles read: "Balloon-atics - Meet a charming lady who swings high, as well as low, when she rises into the sky for a spot of acrobatics. (And it needs some nerve too)".

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    M/Ss of a female acrobat being hoisted high into the air by a huge air balloon or airship; she has her legs hooked through two gymnast rings (she also is attached to one of the airship ropes by a safety rope around her wrist). L/S shows her dangling beneath the balloon; on the side of which are the words 'Steel Pier' - this must be a publicity stunt.

    Several shots of the woman turning over and over on the rings and hanging from a rope by her teeth.
