Good grief, is that the time. I’m now standing at the back of the log jam kicking it as hard as possible to get it through the gap. But I think I might just skip that, run along the top of it and deal with it all later.
Risky though, being trapped under a log jam is good plot device in movies, and I don’t want to be a party to such shenanigans. Another popular peril was sticking a character in quicksand, most notably Anthony Quayle in Ice Cold in Alex. You don’t see quicksand in movies these days, although I’m vaguely recalling tar and oil pits being used in recent times.
A classically trained actor in a paddling pool full of cornflakes and the arses of the viewing public wre on the edges of their seats. George Lucas has a lot to answer for with his damned Star Wars.
