  • Description

    No title.

    Strong man Saxon Brown performs some of his stunts wearing leopard skin shorts in his back garden. First he bends a metal pole with his teeth. We see this in L/S and C/U. He then bends another metal pole by hand. "This is thick wrought iron - and what Saxson (sic) can do to it is nobody's business - " More metal bending ensues. He eventually finishes his bending and holds the bent bar up to the camera and smiles.

    "To squeeze an egg would appear to be easy. As a matter of fact, to crush one in your hands equally is most difficult. Try it when you get home - like this - " Saxon holds the egg in both hands and squeezes it until it bursts. He then wipes all the egg off his face - laughing. Saxon then pulls along a London bus with his teeth. A crowd of people watch Saxon pull the bus along with ropes attached which he holds in his mouth. Various shots of this amazing feat. The crowd applauds.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 645.
