Despite having limited Deaf content, this is a fascinating film showing the thrills awaiting visitors to the 1958 Easter Show in Auckland, including a gymnast balancing on a dizzyingly high pole, a burning stunt man diving into a small pool, and an impressive advertisement for the VW Beetle! Includes brief footage of Deaf visitors to the show.
