  • Description

    Titles read: "THE MASTER! The Trials of a Trainer".

    New York, United States of America.

    Various shots of animal trainer Clyde Beatty with lions and tigers in a cage - at a circus?

    A large man, prizefighter Tommy Loughran, declines Clyde's offer invitation to get in the cage. Clyde says that the animals were raised on milk. The man says so was he, but he eats meat now.

    Several shots of Clyde with a whip and chair, coaxing a ferocious tiger into rolling over several times on the sawdust floor. He seems to have an almost hypnotic power over the animal. The tiger roars and bites the leg of the chair but still rolls over when given the signal.
