• Short Summary

    Roller-skating bears and a human cannonball at a Berlin circus.

  • Description

    Title reads: "GERMANY".

    Berlin, Germany.

    Several shots at a circus show an elephant carrying a little pony in its mouth out of the ring; a bear on roller-skates (horrible) and another bear, wearing a skirt, rides around the ring on a bicycle and falls off - truly gruesome!

    The 'human fly' woman (?) appears to walk upside-down across the ceiling by hooking his feet into rings hanging a few feet from the top of the tent. A man is fired out of a cannon and lands in a large safety net.
