Juggling in Movies

See My Lawyer (1945)

[Ole Olsen, Chic Johnson, Alan Curtis, Grace McDonald, Noah Beery Jr.]

The last of the Olsen and Johnson comedies has the pair as nightclub comedians trying desperately to get out of their contract. Fussy club owner Pangborn won't let them loose, however, so the boys are forced to wander about the club spraying soda water and slinging mud at the patrons until Pangborn relents and fires them.

This film is crowded with many specialty acts that pad the action, including the juggling act by the Six Willys. The Six Willys were William Hoffmann, his brothers, sister, and wife Elizabeth, who came to America fleeing northern Italy in 1939.
