    Titles read: "REAL wresting! Filmed at BURNT STUBB, Chessington, Leatherhead. Meet Hans Brick who features another speedy method of leaving this World - tiger wrestling."

    Chessington, Surrey.

    Various shots of Hans Brick being chased about a cage by a tiger. They wrestle on the ground - is Hans mad?! Natural sound throughout. At one point, when the tiger has Hans' arm in his mouth, someone is heard saying that the tiger is tired then another voice replies that his master's not tired. The tiger lets go of Hans' arm. Shot of Hans after the fight, with his jacket in tatters - he seems unhurt.

    Intertitle reads: "But, in spite of all this - they're the best of pals, for Hans specializes [sic] in friendship with all his animals - ".

    Hans, back in the cage with the tiger, gets the creature to lie down, then seems to give him a kiss. The tiger rubs his face over Hans' face, like a big cat!
