    Young contortionist demonstrates how supple her body is - gruesome!

  • Description

    No title.

    16 year old Myrtle Winder demonstrates the suppleness of her body. Various acrobatic stunts are performed. Gymnastic splits. Contortionist stuff almost. India Rubber Woman! Camera dollys in and out as she performs her bendy routine. Looks like she is in the Pathe Studio. Some of her contortions are really quite gruesome!

    "It's a great thing to have elastic sides - and an elastic spine, too!" Myrtle bends over backwards making fancy movements with her hands. She slinks down onto her back then turns over and does a few more weird stunts.
