    "How many of us would care to have pets like these?" A woman in jodhpurs stands inside a lion's cage - she is a lion tamer. A lion jumps up into her arms. She kisses and cuddles the lion.

    "Madame Olga Celeste is the name of this lady with the iron nerve - and she needs one when petting these playful grown-ups..." C/U of Olga stroking one of the lions. The lion is enjoying this greatly. Olga opens the lion's mouth to look at its teeth. She then kisses the lion on the lips! C/U of Olga with a lion around her shoulders. She laughs. Looks like the lion is playfully biting her chin.

    "Wild, wild pets for wild, wild women!" Olga lies on the floor of the cage and play with the lions. One of the lions starts to bite her arm and it looks like she starts hitting it to get it to stop. M/S of Olga teasing one of the lions with a whip.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 599.

    Note: they could be leopards rather than lions.
