• Short Summary

    Fred Sylvester does some clever lifting, balancing and tumbling with his 'nephew'.

  • Description

    Fred Sylvester and Nephew. Part of the PALS! issue.

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Fred Sylvester, a tall man in an American Policeman uniform and his 'nephew' - I think it is actually a midget - going through their tumbling and balancing turn.

    Very clever stuff, with amazing lifts and balances. Fred is also seen in PT 193 - with his 'Midgets'.

    (Due to different takes being edited together, the nephew's hat appears and disappears quite a lot!)
