The Renaudi Brothers, one a sharpshooter and the other, who claims to be the fastest man in the world, do their amazing act. The "fastest man" dodges three bullets fired by his brother-- before being killed by the last five. Also performing are the Sentimental Sweethearts, an orchestra made up of the little old ladies of the Jack Benny Fan Club, Pasadena chapter.moreless
