Viva Las Vegas (1964)

[Elvis Presley, Ann-Margret, Cesare Danova, William Demarest]

A race-car driver, preparing for the Grand Prix, wiles his time in Las Vegas working as a waiter to pay for his new engine. Soon, he strikes up a romance with a beautiful young woman.

At 55:04, Carl Carlsson and Ruth Carlsson are performing their plate spinning routine, and as Carl is about to place the tenth and final plate, he was directed to trip on the stand holding them, falling down, and knocking all of the plates to the stage floor, where they all shattered to bits, all in 19 seconds.
