  • Description

    Titles read: "Easy money! Who'd like to be a lion tamer? Nice easy job, - short hours - short life - er, we mean, life seems short when frisking about with these bits of playfulness -".

    Germany.

    Various shots of a lion tamer inside a cage with numerous lions. He cuddles one of them, then gets another to balance on a barrel and move along. The others take up poses on stands around the cage. Another lion is persuaded to make a gun fire by pulling a string with his teeth; the other lions jump at the blast. Sequence showing the man pushing a lioness on a swing. Some large lion cubs jump out of boxes and are fed milk from bottles. Tiny lion cubs are held up for the camera by the lion tamer; they are very cute and make little growling noises.

    Cataloguer's note: some of this footage could be viewed as degrading to animals.
