[Helmut Käutner and Carl-Heinz Schroth film; Erik Schumann, Liselotte Pulver, Anna-Maria Sandri]

A juggler wants to throw seven balls and have them remain in the air for a second, like the stars in the Big Bear. There are several minutes of juggling seen throughout the movie, including a cascade with 5 large balls, nice tricks with three large balls, some work with a mouth-stick, and up to 7 small balls. Juggling scenes by Toni Wells. Actor Erik Schumann juggles three large balls and small balls. Freddy Zay is credited as "artistical advisor."
