Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

POLACK BROS. 1960 #4

You'll see this act quite oftten in programs of the '50's & '60's

Two tricks I remember in this act, a round-of flip-flap somersault to a two high, and the girl jumping straight up, from a two high to a three high.


A performer walked into the wardrobe room once, and said to Jimmy Douglass," my wife is going to do a Husky Act like GeeGee's". Jimmy never looked up, & never missed a stitch, he replied,"Your wife might do a Husky Act, but NO ONE, will ever do one like GeeGee!

This was a fantastic Tumbling Act, another one you'll see a lot of
