it's worse than that....how about the poor guy on the 22 ft ladder when some of those overpasses were 13 ft...



"Prior to film production, the ISHC employed  a rather unorthodox
approach to installing a vehicle-mounted camera system on  the film
crew’s vehicle, a 1958 Ford Ranch Wagon. They attached a ladder to the
rear of a station wagon to which a camera was mounted and the cameraman
was  perched, capturing a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle and roadway
ahead. It is  estimated that the ladder extended approximately 22 feet
in the air from the  roadway surface. The camera crew followed and
filmed a lead car, a 1958  Plymouth Fury, throughout the filming
process. The unidentified cameraman had  the precarious task of trying
to hold the camera steady and stay on the ladder,  notably without a
safety harness or other protective device. This all seems  rather
unbelievable considering today’s safety standards, but this photo and
the film tell the story. "

Old photo and camera seem warm. And it is so unbelievable, while it is very interesting.
