• Short Summary

    The Skating Jewels entertain us with some roller-skating stunts.

  • Description

    No titles.

    Comedian Ronald Frankau introduces 'The Skating Jewels', saying a skate is a very difficult thing to manipulate, especially fried with chips.

    We then see a man and woman skating on a small circular platform. They do a few balancing stunts as they twirl round. We then see the woman doing a Russian kicking dance on roller-skates, by balancing on the front wheel of her skates - no stoppers!

    More stunts by the couple, some in slow motion. Their finishing flourish shows the woman hanging from a strap around the man's neck by her teeth, as she spins over and over in an almost horizontal position. There is another strap around her neck.
