Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

M. Marck is able to quell the 'educated', but still untamed lions. He works them up to the point of rebellion, then puts aside whip, bludgeon and pistol, drops on one knee and faces them. He has trained one of the lions to do 'clownish feats'. His is the most daring of similar acts.
