  • Short Summary

    Shots from a rodeo including some cowgirls on horseback - most of film badly decomposed.

  • Description

    Various shots of crowds at a rodeo - some high angle shots. Shots of horses in the ring - men are thrown from the backs of bucking broncos.

    Man on horseback gives a rope spinning display (this shot very badly decomposed). Another man spins two lassoes, jumping in and out of them. Intertitle reads: "The girls (real Westerners - not the Hollywood make)." Camera pans across a bunch of cowgirls - they are all on horseback and wear cowboy hats. This shot is not decomposed but the ones that follow of the girls in the ring unfortunately are very badly damaged.

    This is one of the NFTVA prints made from our decomposing nitrate.
