Juggling in Movies

Fast, Cheap & Out of Control (1997)

[Errol Morris film; Dave Hoover, George Mendonça, Ray Mendez]

What do an elderly topiary gardener, a retired lion tamer, a man fascinated by mole rats, and a cutting-edge robotics designer have in common? Both nothing and everything in this unconventional documentary. These four separate and highly specialized subjects are presented and interrelated in this study of humanity, raising questions about the future of mankind.

The segments on the lion tamer include juggling scenes at the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus.

At 18:54, there is an old 9 second film, with 6 seconds of a woman swinging 2 clubs and 3 seconds of a man and 2 women juggling 3 clubs each.

At 37:09, there are 2 seconds of 3 torch juggling in very fast motion, and 18 seconds later there is another 1 second of this.

At 50:34, there is 6 seconds of 3 club juggling with many right-handed behind the back throws.
