The Maniac Juggler (1907)

[Pathé Frére]

France. This is a 7 minute silent comedy feature.

The main character is a tramp clown who cannot stop juggling. He starts with three balls, but appears bored. He then runs down the street and juggles everything he can find, getting into more and more trouble. This includes hats, puppies, loaves of bread, four balls, bottles, milk containers, and plates. At last he even manipulates a baby, including the devil stick propeller trick.
