01:24:15 The Runaway Skater - comedy film clip. Man on roller skates spins round and round spinning a woman on a laundry basket. He appears to have some motorised contraption attached to the skates which he cannot control. The woman on the basket is laughing. The skater spins off and goes through the wall. The shot cuts to the outside of the house. The women look out of the whole in the wall left by the skater. They run after him. The skater continues his journey down the middle of a road. The women chase him. He skates effortlessly up a steep hill. He knocks over a policeman, who joins the women in the chase. He runs into a lamp post and then runs into a postbox just as the postman is emptying the letters. The postie joins the chase. The skater drops the postbox and skates through a river. The skater runs into a barrow which he drags along beside him. The chasers are carrying a lamppost which they proceed to fall over. They pick themselves up and begin run after the skater again. The chasers knock on a door and shout for the man to come out. A man from next door comes out and sprays them with water from a hose. The skater drops down to the street and gets sprayed as well.
