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!

THE SUNDAY MOVIE TRIPLE FEATURE:FEATURE #1 PETE & PETROVA

The first of our triple features is Peter & Isabel Luvas with their Cradle Act, on the Gil Gray Circus, 1963. I can't recall now why they didn't do the whole act, possibly a three show day.

Great act... Thank you for posting it. You ain't gonna see the likes of it today, thats for sure. By the way, did they use a neck loop or an Ironjaw strap?

There are almost no acts with Ironjaw holds today. I wonder why!

Thanks for showing that. It was great to see, I am going to have to razz my dad about cutting the act. No loop walk! no finish trick!
They did neck loops, not iron jaw.
