• Short Summary

    Precocious 6-year-old Twinkle Watts shows off her Tenpin Bowling skill and squeaky voice.

  • Description

    Titles read: "YOUNG BOWLING CHAMP" (Dublin issue).

    United States of America.

    Various shots of 6-year-old Twinkle Watts giving a display of her skill at Tenpin Bowling. She has a very squeaky voice, golden ringlets and jumps about when she gets a strike.

    It looks as if the man at the end of bowling alley is giving her pins a little help in falling down, though to be fair, Twinkle is getting the bowls fairly central.

    Note: good for illustrating a precocious American child.
