Science Fiction 1906 6 mins Silent


This lively sci-fi 'trick' film sees a woman (or, more accurately, a man in drag) blown skywards following a road accident to become stranded on a church spire. But all may not be lost, as an elderly, eccentric inventor is called upon to rescue her. With the aid of his bizarre flying-machine (a boat with flapping wings and propellers attached to its underside), can the inventor save the day?
