  • Short Summary

    Performing sea lions do some tricks.

  • Description

    "Young Bill" is a sea lion who can balance almost anything on his snout.

    We see Bill on top of a podium balancing a large doll on his nose. He walks down the steps of a ladder. Then we see him balancing a large ball on his nose. Posters for a circus are pasted up behind him. It looks like the circus is called "Hagenbeck".

    M/S of the trainer with two sea lions bouncing the ball backwards and forwards between them. "Old Bill" looks more like a walrus. C/U of him playing some sort of brass instrument.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 632.
