    "Jose Cange" should read Jose Canga.

    "grande Rodeos de France" should read Grand Rodeos de France.

    We don't have much information about this clip. Does anyone know more about the Grand Rodeos de France?

    I've tried to find out more about Jose Canga. I've found details in Spanish, Dutch, French and even Finnish, but there's little about him in English.

    His troupe did, though, appear at the British Grand Prix in 1963. A photo and newspaper article, (which you'll have to "drag down" using your cursor") from this event are here....

    Note that Jose Canga also features in another British Pathe clip, number 2037.18.

    I've just discovered that the performance by Canga that I've referenced below at the 1963 British Grand Prix features in a British Pathe clip - see clip number 1772.18.
