FOR DICK FLINT: THE THREE BARS
I received an email from Dick Flint, asking the difference between a Bar Act, & a Casting Act. The next day while researching some items for "The Dime's Store", I stumbled onto this article in the Bandwagon files. It's rather long but interesting, as it touches on the lack of true appreciation for what many old timers still say is the toughest act in the business. It is especially to an old ex "hoe handler" like me, and it talks of tricks that I only dreamed of doing.
Unless I missed something, it doesn't mention the "Flifla", which was a "fly-over" from one bar to the next, with a somersault added, to my knowledge it was accomplished by only two people, Ignacio Ibarra, & Pablo Rodriquez.
