  • Description

    A young girl - about 10 or 11 years old poses behind a tiny monkey swinging on a trapeze - she is presumably Lilian Max.

    She walks away and the monkey performs somersaults on the bar. He then sits and swings on the trapeze. C/U of the monkey. He performs other tricks - hanging from the bar by his feet etc. Acrobatics and gymnastics. Monkey swings and does somersaults.

    Lilian Max - whoever she may be - comes on and undoes the monkey's safety line.

    The monkey wears a white outfit with shiny trousers - really quite revolting!

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 431.
