  • Short Summary

    Slow motion footage of trapeze act.

  • Description

    "Without that absolute sureness of eye and hand, no trapeze artist could maintain his high position." L/S of two trapeze artists performing in the open air on high trapezes. An American flag flies in the background. They do various stunts.

    "These slow-motion shots show their perfect judgement." Closer shot of one of the men swinging then jumping. He is caught by the other man. The man who jumps has a bag over his head so he can't see anything! Slow motion footage of their jumps and catches. Impressive.
