In 1933, for the benefit of American newsreels, Ben Dova performed his acrobatic act atop New York's 56 storey Chanin Building with no net, no wires and no camera tricks. Theatre audiences were terrified by what they saw and genuinely feared for Dova's personal safety. Fainting at the sight of the newsreel was documented.
