  • Short Summary

    Crazy dancing involving much throwing around and the splits - a funny routine.

  • Description

    "When time hangs heavily try this little "livener" - it will either kill or cure."

    The Eclair Twins emerge through a curtain in frilly dresses and large floppy hats. Billy Wells emerges. A wild crazy dance ensues - Billy dances with one of the girls. It is pretty crazy "jazz dance" and involves both of them doing the splits and throwing each other around all over the place. Pretty violent - they end with a bow. Short section - incomplete.

    Issue number unknown.

    Note: good pastiche of the wild "jazz baby" dancing of the 1920s.
