    "Meet Miss Tamara, who goes her swinging way on a trapeze..."

    Spotlight appears on a scantily dressed woman who sits upon a trapeze. She swings down and performs some impressive balancing acts on the trapeze. Looks like this was shot in the Pathe studio. Miss Tamara performs various feats and stunts.

    "Swinging betwixt heaven and earth, just trusting in her personal skill to save the Insurance Companies a lot of trouble." Moving camera follows Miss Tamara as she swings back and forth. "Just a free and easy swing - and a free and easy drop should those skilful feet make any mistake (slow motion.)" One of Tamara's stunts is shown in slow motion. C/U of the smiling Tamara which shows her costume off nicely.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 598.

    Note: there is a letter in the Pathe files inviting Miss Tamara to come to the Pathe Studio for her act to be filmed. Apparently a Pathe employee had seen her show at the Wood Green Empire and enjoyed it so much he thought she should be in Eve's Film Review.
