Juggling in Movies

Mamma Roma (1962)

[Anna Magnani, Ettore Garofolo, Franco Citti, Silvana Corsini]

Italian. Mamma Roma is a middle-aged whore of Roma, who can now quit her job to become a fruit seller. And she can take back her son, Ettore. For him, she dreams of a good position. But it is perhaps too late for Ettore, whose company includes mostly teenaged louts.

There is a brief moment when Ettore tries to impress some girls by balancing a long stick on his chin. Moments later, when he gives away a small object to Bruna (Silvana Corsini), she practices juggling with it. She does 3 0 0, clapping during the 0s.
