• Short Summary

    Men in Paris repair and repaint the Eiffel Tower, without harnesses or safety equipment!

    LS of Eiffel Tower on the Seine, cut to CU of men clinging to tower structure and undertaking repairs. Parisian skyline and landmarks visible in the background. Shots of the men scrambling over the structure without safety equipment. One jumps atop a lift, going up, and gets off at the next level. He walks across one of the horizontal beams, with very little foot space - like walking a tightrope! Cut to downward shot, displaying the height of the structure. Cut to CU of cameraman recording these scenes.
