• Short Summary

    16-year-old roller skater Nony Pracer entertains with a gliding routine in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'NOW Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - ROLLING ACROBATICS! by NONY PRACER of the Windmill Theatre, London'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of 16-year-old roller skater Nony Pracer skating around the studio set, dressed in a satin, fur-trimmed dress with matching hat and panties. The music sounds like a pseudo-Strauss waltz and is called 'Throw Open Wide Your Window'. Nony does handstands spins and high kicks. One handstand is in slow motion.

    She ends her act by doing two one-handed cartwheels and lands in the splits position.
