Ladies and gentlemen - Mike Ribble, the
reaching the arms of his catcher.
You see, Achille, here I am 46 years old,
Before, the lowest bar on the lion's cage
- Now it is only one.
- Ce n'est pas si mal que a, monsieur.
- O sont les gueules?
- Vous voulez des tigres?
- Et mon nom?
Chaque anne, il est de plus en plus
minuscule. Refaites-moi cette affiche.
Monsieur Bouglione, you like? Beautiful,
yes? By opening night, magnificent. I...
- What they do, I see. What do you do?
- Me? I show you.
- Parlez Anglais?
- Do you know Mike Ribble?
performers that ever circled a torso.
- He's got the build for it, hasn't he?
- He don't look like a snake lover.
- Anybody know Mike Ribble?
- Say hello to the gentleman.
American. A great flier.
You know, the trapeze.
- He's got a job here.
- I knew a man named Gribble.
Did an act with a python of uncertain
temper and extraordinary big jaws.
- Who are you?
- Tino Orsini.
- That's Ribble.
Above the plane, tightening the rigging.
Baby, wake up. She's a bit sluggish
since her dinner last week.
Mr. Ribble! Say, Mr. Ribble!
You! In my circus, when I
put together a show I have silence.
- I just wanna see Mr. Ribble.
- See him on his time, not mine.
- Monsieur, you said you'd find a buyer.
- I find no buyer.
She's high-spirited, that's all. If she's
warm it's safe. My brother let her get cold.
would you buy a snake act?
Now watch. Off the bars,
- We do business, monsieur?
- I see these boys work before.
- Where'd they find you?
- They're lucky, no?
- Where you find her?
- We don't find her. She finds us.
I pay you what you got before,
and I check what you got before.
But the Cirque d'Hiver
The Cirque d'Hiver, yes. Your act, no.
- Look, I take the act as it is.
- All right.
- He likes us?
- What did he say?
Come on, say it.
- What's the matter, Lola?
- Whatever he said, say it.
Come on. Speak, Lola.
- He will not buy the act as it is.
- He wants me to do more.
I do not say it's my idea that I do more.
It's Bouglione. He insist.
Otherwise, we don't work.
You're always trying
to do more. It's our act.
Ali, if you feel this way about me,
I will leave the act.
Oh, shut up.
Mr. Ribble? Hey, Mr. Ribble?
Hey, get down out of there
before you fall down.
- But I'm a flier.
- I don't care what you are. Get down.
I came all the way from Brooklyn
to see you. My old man is Guido Orsini.
He taught me all he knew. You're
the only man who can teach me more.
Tell him I'm not a coach. I'm a rigger.
And tell him in person, back in Brooklyn.
- Look, Mr. Ribble...
- Go on, beat it, son. I'm busy.
I want something only you can give me.
You're the only man in the world
that can teach me the triple.
The triple? Are you crazy?
Don't you know why I'm a rigger?
I need a little help on the third.
- Just a little help on the third, huh?
