Film Notes

Economic disaster forces Count von Rosenörn to leave his estate and move to a simple hotel where he becomes acquainted with a group of circus artists. To impress the circus’ leading lady, and femme fatale, he prepares a spectacular and daring act, which involves jumping from the circus big top onto the back of a horse. Before the performance takes place a fire breaks out in the hotel, and the count escapes with the woman who truly loves him. The film is spectacular even though the “lethal jump” is somewhat overrated. Psilander’s double, Axel Mattson, was seriously injured performing the stunt.
