Taming the Lions

This is a great German postcard from the early 1900's. The gal in the center of all of the lions is Tilli Bebe who was a German actress in about 4 films. At least that's all I have learned from doing a google search. (not even a Wikipedia page on her) I'm not sure which film this is from, or if it even is from a film. But really, what would it be? Who in their right mind chooses to pose in a cage with a bunch of lions? I love this photo, because they all look very relaxed, like 'hey, no big deal'. And honestly, she looks as though she could handle this very well, thank you very much. I love strong, capable women!


  1. Um...this isn't actually an old photo...this is just one that was taken after they ate Roy...Sigfried usually wears his hair in a pony tail, so that's understandably confusing...
