  • Short Summary

    Man places his head inside an elephant's mouth.

  • Description

    We meet a man who trusts an elephant enough to place his head inside the animal's mouth.

    M/S of the stunt. The man lifts up his legs so that he is dangling from the elephant's mouth. The elephant walks along. The man is called Ali and has never suffered any ill from this stunt apart from once when the Elephant tried to sneeze. Closer shot of the man with his head inside the elephant's mouth. Elephant walks around - this is possibly an outdoor circus or zoo.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 686.
