  • Description

    A circus troupe of elephants is the subject of this story.

    Various shots of the elephants performing various stunts and displays. Climbing on podiums, lying down, sitting up etc. Two men sit astride the elephants while they have a kind of fight, pushing against each other. The men hit the elephants with sticks. An elephant is made to go down a big slide into a pool of water. All this activity takes place in the open air - possibly in India.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 700.
