It was in "The Mighty Quinn" filmed in Jamaica. Jimmy rides overhead above a small valley shooting down as Denzel Washington runs down into the valley where a shack is burning. Jimmy steps off at the end and follows Denzel on foot. If anyone has copies of the "SOA" newsletter there is an article about it. The rig Jimmy rode on was just something cobbled together on the set.
The idea of sliding on a wire with the rig on some kind of suspended chair goes way back Jimmy Muro? somewhere in central america?

I've seen the behind-the-scenes footage of him doing the shot, he does not start on that wooden platform. It's simply gorgeous......and the footage IN the movie is pretty tasty too.
I was one of the Instructors at the last Workshop in Yellow Springs and so...I got to fly the SkyMan. Hot damn, but it's a brilliant machine.
Jerry's reel of footage made with that thing is truly something else. You run that along with the Super-Fly Cam and SkyCam footage and man, you can believe that any shot is possible.
And, it is.
