    Lancaster and Curtis team up in Paris to try and attempt the very difficult triple somersault on the trapeze AND Gina Lollobrigida. It's circus life menage á trois with a side order of melodrama. Interesting yet unengaging.

    Lancaster was a great actor and the stunts he did himself were unbeleivable by todays hollywood actors. Great movie of love, life and swinging through the air on a rope...what more can you ask for.
