  • Short Summary

    Man clambers around on a girder high above the ground - a scary stunt to those with a fear of heights.

  • Description

    "Some people are never content with this earth - they always want to leave it." Man crawls along an incredibly high girder of a building under construction - scary stunt! He stops to pick something up off the girder. Low angle shot showing how high off the ground he actually is - gulp! "And this would be a first-class way for most of us..." He does scary stuff hanging off the edge of the girder then climbing back on.

    "Playfulness - 350 feet above the street!" Same man is seen clambering around the top of a very tall chimney. Camera tilts down to show that it is very, very tall indeed. "Quick-lunch training...!" Man sits on girder eating his lunch and waving to the camera. Closer shot of him as he eats a banana and a sandwich.
