• Short Summary

    Circus elephant trained to rest foot on a person's head by practising on a tray of eggs first.

  • Description

    Ascot, Berkshire.

    Various shots in a circus ring show elephant trainer Gosta Kruse getting an elephant to rest her foot on a tray of eggs. Then Gosta's girlfriend Joan Fowles lies on a mat on the ground and the elephant rests her foot on Joan's face. Gosta then takes over.

    Two other elephants appear and we see them slowly lying down over brave people lying beneath them. The other performers are Wyn (Wynne?) Hayes and Joan.
