  • Description

    No title. L/S of a woman dancing in front of a curtain backdrop. She wears black shorts and a white top. She swings her legs around. Closer shot of her as she begins an acrobatic routine. She does handsprings, walking on her hands and doing "scissors" with her legs, somersaults.

    "Just to "slow" this fast lady we'll turn on Eve's ultra-rapid camera" Slow motion footage of the acrobat doing her stuff. "You want a fine sense of balance - and an india-rubber body to copy Beate's style" Beate continues her routine. "And only the ultra-rapid eye, taking 160 pictures a second, could explain how she does it - " Slow motion footage of Beate's impressive somersaults. "Fast as you wish - all acrobatics come alike to Beate" Beate does more crazy twirls and jumps. "Just try it over when you get home - you can all see how it's done!" More slow motion acrobatics.

    Flash-frame intertitles.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 556.

    Note: paper records state that this is Beate Bradna.
