    Four-year-old Billy Crawford bounces up and down below a tethered balloon.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Ups and Downs - Life is full of ups and downs for Billy Crawford, four-year-old bouncing Balloonist."

    United States of America.

    Several shots of four-year-old Billy Crawford helping to inflate a huge balloon. A man and another boy help Billy get into a little sling-seat hanging below the balloon and Billy takes off into the air! The balloon is tethered, so after rising up it comes back down to earth; Billy's father catches him by the leg on the way down. On the next bump Billy hits the ground before his father can catch him, but commentator assures us he isn't even scratched. C/U of Billy as he says "Hi buddy! I had a nice flight today!".
