    Cycling stunts by Alma Victoria.

  • Description

    Alma Victoria - the "Whirly Wheely Girl" is featured in this story.

    "Alma is one of those modern girls who seem to be brought up on a wheel - not a bottle." Alma does various stunts with a bicycle in the Pathe Studio. She does acrobatic contortions - wrapping herself around the bicycle, doing handstands on the bike, cycling on one wheel, and rolling over a man's back as he grabs the bike. "Unlike the cycle, Alma is never tired." Two men spin a long rope and Alma "skips" on her bike. Alma does a stunt where she does a forward roll over a table and jumps back on her bike again. We see Alma "skipping" in slow motion. We see the forward roll over the table repeated in slow motion.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 451.

    Safety print exists.
