A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century."
Jean François Heckel,
In 1972, the patients and doctors at Stephens Sanitarium were brutally murdered. Over forty years later, the only known survivor returns only to find the ghosts of the past have not been resting in peace.
After the boy goes over the falls, a man behind the railing on the shore yells to the girl being carried toward the falls, "Come on! Try to swim in!" During this shot, the director, Kieth Merrill, is walking from left to right, behind the people at the railing. See more »
When her helper's up-end Annie's barrel to put the lid on it, the midsection is covered with leaves. In the next shot, when they roll it toward the river, the leaves are gone. See more »
If you ask me - This "Niagara" history-documentary (which was originally an IMAX presentation) turned out to be quite a dismal production, in the long run.
Featuring several super-dreary re-enactments of key moments in the 12,000-year-old history of the falls, "Niagara's" initial "Lelawala: Maiden of the Mist" story was so ridiculous in its presentation that I found it to be downright laughable.
Yes. Indeed. Words like dull and lack lustre would also describe this particular documentary very accurately.
Nope. I would never recommend this documentary.
