What it is: Daring rescue trick film
After a woman is stranded on a steeple as the result of a biking accident, a professor with an airship attempts to rescue her.
I never knew bikes were so dangerous; when this one hits the wagon the woman was sitting in, it tosses her up into the heavens, and she only reaches the steeple thanks to her parasol, which causes her to float like Mary Poppins. The airship is also pretty amusing; it has propellers on the bottom and flapping wings on the side. All in all, this is a fairly amusing trick film.
