Stunts performed with a rope - lassoing, knocking the top off a bottle, tying rope in a knot etc.
"Whipping stoppers off bottles isn't new - but this way is - "
Woman in a "western" style outfit holds out a bottle. A man uses a whip to knock the top off. He goes to the woman, grabs the bottle and pretends to drink from it. The man then flicks a piece of rope which ties itself in a knot. We see this again in slow motion. Our man then flicks it again to unknot it.
"And a flexible loop becomes steely-taut when whirled at high speed." Our man does various stunts with a lasso which involve him lying on the ground, jumping up and through the loop etc. We see him knock the stopper out of a bottle again - this time in slow motion.
Image quality of this film is rather poor.
