If contemporary reviews can believed, this Pathe half-reeler delivering nothing more than what its title promised. Two acrobatic amputees hop onto the stage on crutches. The men link arms and perform several amazing acrobatic feats. As a climax to the act, the men join forces to leap over a stationary box. Throughout the film, the one-legged acrobats poke gentle fun at their own handicaps. Evidently this was considered amusing back in 1910, but it is likely that the film would seem depressing or even offensive if screened today.
