Star Item
  • Description

    Titles read: "Seal Ho! The Circus Stars are in training for the Summer tour."

    Peru (?), Indiana, United States of America.

    Various shots of Roland Habler (sp? Habbler?) and his trained sea-lions practising tricks from their act in a yard. One seal catches hoops around its neck, another climbs to the top of a ladder while balancing a ball on a pole on the end of his nose. Roland throws a ball to the same sea-lion, who keeps tossing it back with his nose. A seal balances a ball on his nose and walks around with it, out of the shot and past some camera lights. Another plays a tune by honking some horns with his nose.

    An elephant wearing a hat, glasses and a fake beard walks across the yard and seems to dance a few steps.

    Cataloguer's note: some of this footage could be viewed as degrading to animals.
