Juggling in Movies

Casino (1995)

[Robert DeNiro, Sharon Stone, Joe Pesci, James Woods, Don Rickles, Alan King]

Sam 'Ace' Rothstein, a mob-connected casino operator in Las Vegas, attempts a civilized lifestyle with his money-conditional wife, Ginger. Nicky Santoro, a boyhood friend of Ace and now a Made-Man of the Mafia, arrives in town with an ambitious agenda of his own that soon disrupts Ace's life. Before long, Ginger and her long-time leeching lover Lester, along with Nicky's mistakes, cause problems.

Robert DeNiro juggles three white balls for about 15 catches. Using several edits, he may have only gotten 4 or 5 throws at a time. The scene ends with him chasing the balls around the Las Vegas stage he's on. The credits list the excellent professional juggler Gil Dova, who may have only been used to teach DeNiro to juggle.
