  • Short Summary

    An acrobatic act called the Brent Brothers perform some gymnastic feats for our entertainment.

  • Description

    "Meet the Brent Bros." C/U of two beefy men wearing strong man outfits - one shouldered leopard print costumes and studded wristbands. They have their hands in the air in a salute - they slowly lower them.

    "The easy way they bend about should alter their name to "Bent" Bros." L/S of the duo doing their act in the Pathe studio. One of them stands on his hands then rolls forward to lie on his back with his arms in the air. His partner leans on his palms and does a handstand on his brother's hands. There follows all sorts of acrobatics and gymnastics. They are obviously both very strong and agile.

    "And now for that whirl - a living "throwabout" a bundle of concentrated energy and speed." One brother holds the other in his arms then spins him very quickly around his body - pretty impressive. "Slow-Motion" shows this unique "turn". We see the stunt again in slow motion.
