video

Bertram Mills Olympia 1958/9

Knie's Jungle Fantasy (lions, tigers, leopards, polar and himalayan bears) - Eugen Weidmann
Knie's sealions - Doris Hoppe
Schumanns Liberty Horses - Albert, Max and Paulina Schumann
Ivor Rosaire Elephants
The Rudolfe Steys - Highwire
Albert Schumanns Ponies - Douglas Kossmayer
High School - Albert, Max, Paulina Schumann and Douglas Kossmayer

It is a shame the segment with Eugen Weidmann is so short. I would sure like to see more of this gentleman. If you look closely you will be able to see that thing called "elegance" that Jando claims to have seen in Gilbert Houcke. It is distinctly different then "swish." Anyone who never had the honor or good fortune to see Charly Baumann work, you could probably get a pretty good idea of what you missed by watching video's of Eugen Weidmann.
