• Short Summary

    Acrobats Adriana and Charlot demonstrate their skill on a trampoline.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'MID-AIR ACROBATICS!'

    Berlin, Germany.

    Various shots of the acrobats Adriana and Charlot, "springboard artists from the Berlin Scala" giving a demonstration of their skill on a trampoline in a courtyard. She wears a little dress, he wears casual top and trousers.

    They do several jumps, somersaults, leaps and so on, with some shots in slow motion. The most amazing feats are Charlot leaping, turning a somersault and landing feet first on the shoulders of Adriana! We also get a cameraman's view as he has a go on the trampoline.

    Several shots of Charlot jumping and somersaulting on his own on the trampoline.

    Commentator says "He floats through the air with the greatest of ease, does this daring young man in the long BVDs" (whatever they are - does anyone know?).
