Wall Of Death Girl (1963) By BRITISH PATHÉ


"Ms. Cindy Willis, 17, riding scooter along the sea front. Panning shot Cindy riding off street into 'Kursaal' fairground. Cindy parks scooter outside 'Wall of Death' stunt show. Cindy enters cylindrical 'Wall of Death'. Inside she greets 'Tornado' Smith as she removes her coat and helmet. Cindy and 'Tornado' chat and prepare their bikes for the stunt. Cindy rides around in circles, the momentum allows her to ride the walls of the cylinder. Various shots of Cindy riding helmet-less around 'Wall of Death'. Various shots spectators watching from top of wall. Various shots 'Tornado' riding wall. Various shots of both riders going around wall. Narrator comments that after filming, ironically, Cindy failed her scooter test!"

Does anyone know what happened to Cindy Willis (I think her real first name was Sylvia)? Or if she ever passed her test?! Adrian Riley says she moved to America. If you have any information, let us know in the comment section below!
