  • Description

    A novel miniature circus.

    Camera pans across big top, animal trailers, etc. We then see animals and circus performers moving around inside the big top. Closer view of the moving figures shows a performing horse, an elephant with a lion on its back, a woman standing on a horse's back etc.

    We then see two cockerels (real ones) sitting on a perch. Then we see one of the cockerel's pulling along a little cage on wheels which has a hamster or guinea pig inside. High angle of the cockerel pulling the cart along. We then see a bird in a very small cage which has learned a trick - he manages to pull up a container of food from the bottom of a pole into his cage.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 517.

    Safety print exists - nitrate badly decomposing.
