  • Description

    Titles read: "Caught by the Camera".

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Various shots of two chimpanzees doing tricks with a trainer - doing somersaults off a seesaw, walking on stilts, skipping with a rope, jumping over some hurdles (trainer has to talk the chimp into doing this one), and walking across a tightrope - one walks across in a tutu with a blindfold across her eyes. A small crowd watches from the back of the room.

    One of the chimps is seen in a policeman uniform, sitting next to a small gorilla wearing the same. The chimp in the tutu walks backwards along the tightrope, still blindfolded.
