  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown / unclear.

    Cuts from newsreel 47/78 - Fakir Swordsman.

    Various shots show men putting a sword through the middle of Fakir swordsman Mirim Dajo. The blade goes right through the man's body and out the other side. Looks horrendous, but real! A large audience watches the demonstration.

    Brief shots follow of Dajo eating at a table with some other men - seems to be perfectly alright.
