Juggling in Movies

The Wild and the Innocent (1959)

[Audie Murphy, Joanne Dru, Gilbert Roland, Jim Backus, Sandra Dee]

In Wyoming, mountain trapper Yancey goes to the nearest town to trade his pelts but gets into trouble when he tries to save runaway dance-hall girl Rosalie from her shameful job.

Duke Johnson and Fred Johnson were listed in the credits as jugglers, and they both appear dressed as clowns. At 46:53, one of them is seen juggling 3 clubs with very high throws for about 2 seconds, on the far left edge of the screen. That was the only juggling shown in the movie, although both of them appear several times over the 90 seconds following the juggling.
