  • Description

    Full titles read: "The rhythm girls." (new title) "We've heard a lot about "Rhythm Kings" and "Rhythm Boys" - here are the Rhythm Girls of a German Athletic cult practising ------." (remainder of title is obscured by timecode.)

    Germany.

    Various shots of a group of girls sitting on the ground, bouncing balls and banging little drums with drumsticks in time to some piano music. They are also seen standing in a semicircle, bouncing balls in time; one girl stands in the centre, wafting her ball about over her arms and hands. M/S of the girls kneeling on the ground in two rows facing each other; they slap the ground with their hands and clap out a rhythm. Looks like quite good fun!

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
