  • Short Summary

    Stunt motorcyclist performs various tricks. Mountaineers make a treacherous climb.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "One of the first "safety last" men we came across was a Motor Cyclist who prefers a little change of position on his rides."

    M/Ss of a stunt cyclist who does various tricks on his motorbike. He stands on the saddle as he rides it along, and lies on his back on the seat. He also rides side-saddle. Another stunt motorcyclist pulls a roller skater behind him. They seem to be on a motor racing track. We then see the motorcyclist speeding along pulling the roller skater who has another man sitting on his back. C/U of the man on the skates. He looks a bit familiar - possibly a stunt man from another Eve Pictorial item? We see him from the point of view of a cameraman sitting on the motorbike.

    M/S of mountaineers, who are climbing an icy cliff-face using ice-picks to secure their route. Another M/S shows climbers scaling a rocky cliff face with snow covered terrain below them. C/U of one of the climbers as he picks his way up the rocky cliff. Various shots of the treacherous climb.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 493.

    Safety print only. Original decomposed and destroyed.
