Summary
  • Home movie footage shot by Con Colleano during the 1920s through to the 1940s.;
  • Reel 1: includes a performance at Steel Pier in New Jersey with diving displays and outdoor circus, and scenes of Rio De Janeiro, Suva and Sydney
  • Reel 2A: includes street scenes in Hamburg, New York and London, film of the Colleanos' on vacation in Pennsylvania with recreation scenes on the lake, and the Colleanos' partying
  • Reel 2B: includes unloading animals from a circus train, preparing for a grand parade, circus performers entering and exiting the circus tent, and informal scenes before and after a performance
  • Reel 3 shows a circus performance including tumbling and flexibility displays, and an outdoor trapeze artist performance. Con Colleano was highly sought after as one of a handful of top-ranking, very highly paid circus and vaudeville artists performing the top circuits of England, America and Europe. One of Con Colleano's innovations and the only exponent of the feat, previously thought impossible, was the forward somersault which can be seen in these recordings
