Zigomar - the Black Scourge - Episode 2 (1913)Short, Crime · 1 March 1913
The next dastardly trick of Zigomar was to secure the safe which carried $50,000 belonging to the owner of the Grand African Circus, which he had won as a prize. He and La Rosario, disguised as servants, joined the circus and by the aid of a powerful elephant managed to get the safe to a manhole into which is was lowered to Zigomar and La Rosario. But it slipped from the ledge and soon sank out of sight in the mud. The case for the apprehension of the thief was placed in the hands of Paulin Broquet, and, disguised, he started to investigate. In the circus parade the next day he saw Zigomar and made a grab for him. La Rosario saw this, and, obedient to her command, her trained elephant took Broquet around the waist and hurled him to the ground. In the confusion Zigomar and La Rosario escaped.
