• Short Summary

    70-year-old circus strong man displays his strength by being run over by a van.

  • Description

    California-in-England, Berkshire.

    Various shots of 70-year-old circus strong man Alexander Zass having a steel girder bent over his shoulders by a team of men. They are outside some caravans, probably in the circus grounds.

    Zass then lies down on the ground and a Ford 8 van runs over his legs - yuk! Looks horrible. He rolls over, jumps up and walks off.

    Notes, cutting and correspondence on file.
