  • Short Summary

    Performing lions, leopards and tigers do various stunts - camera tricks are used.

  • Description

    "Meet the kittens - outsize variety."

    M/S of three lions on a kind of see-saw. They seem to be in a cage - probably outside a circus. The lions do various tricks. One lion lies across two podiums and another lion jumps over him. One of the lions is called Billie and we see him "With the aid of our famous process-camera" in slow motion. He jumps over his friend. The film is stopped and reversed a few times.

    "A flying hawk taught a leopard a few tricks." We see a leopard jump a very long way through the air. Through film reversal we see this feat backwards. A tiger performs a high jump. The film is stopped and started as the tiger jumps over. We then see the film reversed and repeated.
