• Short Summary

    Famous acrobatic dancers have fun throwing each other about the studio.

  • Description

    Probably filmed in Pathe Film Studio, London.

    Shots of Maloff, Chicka and Tony - famous acrobatic dancers.

    A male dancer lifts his female companion his above his head. The comedy then begins.

    The other male dancer comes in and kicks his colleague who lets the girl fall. They appear to be fighting over her and throw her, twist her and drop her all around the studio. She gets some revenge at one stage by pulling the two men into each other.

    The music may be 'Skater's Waltz' by Waldteufel. Ascherberg.

    Note: alternative spellings for search purposes - Mallar, Chickar, Chika.
