Mother Throws Knives At Kids For Entertainment


Bad parenting or good clean fun ? This strange little slice of newsreel entertainment from the 1950’s is played for laughs. Today it would be considered child endangerment at the very least. Below is the disception from InternetArchive.org;
Texas: Knife-thrower Louella Gallagher throws knives at her daughters Connie Ann, 5, and Colleena Sue, 2-1/2, missing them skillfully as the knives enter a board. Newsreel story.

This movie is part of the collection: Prelinger Archives
Producer: Universal-International Newsreel
Audio/Visual: Sd, B&W
