Sorry. This film is not currently available.

A gymnast for the Newark Turnverein performed for Thomas Edison's camera, almost certainly as a test in preparation for the filming of Eugen Sandow (which took place a short time later). Scenes of somersaulting athletes were filmed at about this time as well. Why is the dog in the frame? We'll never know.

Good warm-up workout demonstration. I want to see the Sandow footage!

Well it is 118 years old! amazingly old!

A quick, cool, time capsule.
