Juggling in Movies

Xanadu (1980)

[Olivia Newton-John, Gene Kelly, Michael Beck, James Sloyan]

The Greek muses incarnate themselves on Earth to inspire men to achieve. One of them, incarnated as a girl named Kira, encounters a musician/artist named Sonny Malone. With the help of Danny McGuire, a man Kira had inspired forty years earlier, Sonny builds a huge disco roller rink.

At 1:21:21, the finale begins with Gene Kelly, Olivia Newton-John and others roller skating under juggling clubs being passed by five pairs of jugglers for a few seconds. The jugglers included Peter Davison, Greg Dean, Hillary Carlip, Albie Selznick, Nate Stein, Roy Johns, and Marc Schiltz Takoda. See the first 48 seconds of this clip.
