  • Description

    "Any Sergeant Majors or Drum Majors here? If so, they'll be jealous when they see this little girl - " reads the introductory intertitle.

    L/S of a woman spinning a rifle around at great speed. She throws it in the air and catches it and spins it around her shoulders and in the air. She wears jodhpurs, riding boots, a shirt and a tie. We see Mlle Loyal perform her juggling stunts in slow motion. The background to her act is a curtain - probably shot in the Pathe Studio. The rifle is thrown, caught and spun in slow motion. Side view of the woman as she performs her tricks. Seen again in slow motion.

    Positive section follows - a plate spinning sequence. A plate is spun on top of a whip balanced on top of another whip held in the girls' mouth. Sequence repeated in negative.
