Friendly Persuasion (1956)

[Gary Cooper, Dorothy McGuire, Anthony Perkins, Richard Eyer]

The story of a family of Quakers in Indiana in 1862. Their religious sect is strongly opposed to violence and war. It's not easy for them to meet the rules of their religion in everyday life but when Southern troops pass the area they are in real trouble. Should they fight, despite their peaceful attitude?

At 31:12, the Quaker family goes to a county fair, and as the scene opens, someone is using a diabolo in the background on the left side.
At 40:34, and during the next 2 minutes while wrestling is happening, someone juggles 3 clubs in the background on the right side.
At 44:16, in the last scene at the fair, in the background on the left side, a man juggles 2 rings in one hand for 3 seconds while holding a third ring in his other hand.
