Juggling in Movies
[Peter Jackson film; Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody]
A greedy film producer assembles a team of moviemakers and sets out for
the infamous Skull Island, where they find more than just cannibalistic
The movie opens with a two minute montage that contrasts scenes
from depression-era New York City life with vaudeville theater, all
backed by an Al Jolson recording of "I'm Sitting on Top of the World."
This contains several interesting specialty acts, including 3 that make
use of juggling.
At 0:02:18, Daniel Tusia juggles and eats 3 apples for 2 seconds.
At 0:02:20, Sosina Wogayehu bounce juggles 3 balls while bent over
backwards, also seen for just 2 seconds.
At 0:02:30, this sequence finishes with part of a routine by
Naomi Watts, playing vaudevillian Ann Darrow, in which she dances and
does several hat and acrobatics tricks that are all faked.
At 2:10:31, Ann Darrow tries to win over the giant ape by dancing and
juggling. Digital effects were used that fail to make it appear that
Naomi Watts is actually juggling three rocks and doing a shoulder throw
and under the leg throws.
The entire movie may be seen here.
