Director(s): Kieth Merrill
41 min

For a dime,

you could ride the steamboat

right under the falls

and see them as they were never

seen before.

How do you do?

Welcome to Niagara.

Your Highness.

Thank you.

Princes, presidents,

painters and poets-

they all came

to the mighty falls...

It's Blondin!

But so did

another kind of men-

men willing

to risk their lives

to prove

that they were greater

than the power of Niagara.

Let Blondin through.

Let him through.

Let Blondin through.

Excuse me.

Let Blondin step through.

Make way for...

Excuse me.

Excuse me, ladies.

Blondin, Blondin...

Blondin, the prince.

Good luck and

best wishes to you.

It's an honor.

Now, may I extend

an invitation?

You go on my back

and, uh, we work together?


I will work alone.

Let's go.

Ladies and gentlemen...

the Great Blondin of France

is about to perform

an act of true daring...

a feat never before attempted

by mortal man.

Your attention, please.

He is about to begin.

There he goes.

The steamship Lelawala

was only seven years old

when the Civil War broke out.

Tourism died

and the boat was sold.

Captain Joel Robinson faced

the most extraordinary challenge

of his life.

I bought her on condition

I get her downriver.

That means taking her

through whirlpool rapids.

They claim it's

the most dangerous stretch

of white water in the world.

It's never been done.

They say I shouldn't try,

but, hell, impossible is a word

that old steamboat and I

ain't never heard of.

Huh?! Ed! Ed!





They'll never believe it.

I've been telling

stories for so long

they're coming true.

No chance you got a bit

of baling wire, hey?

Where in larnation have

do you come from, boy?!

Upriver, Niagara Falls.

I think maybe the

spirits sent you.

Maybe they did, old timer,
