The Loretta Twins perform lasso and skipping tricks as well as acrobatics, wearing matching cowgirl outfits.
The film was shot in a Melbourne park by Frank 'Tex' Glanville who created the slow-motion sections of the film in-camera.
Glanville was a renowned Australian vaudeville performer who specialised in rope spinning and juggling between approximately 1928 and 1965.
He made a range of home movies on 8mm film featuring his vaudeville friends. These are preserved as part of the home movie collection at the NFSA.
