The Juggler of Notre Dame (1984)

[Carl Carlsson, Merlin Olsen, Pat Collins, Melinda Dillon, Gene Roche]

Based on the classic fable by Anatole France. About an itinerant juggler who can't make a go of it in any "practical" line of work. On Christmas Eve, it is customary for the clergy at Notre Dame cathedral to offer presents to the statue of the Virgin Mary. He knows no craft, can sing no song, can write no books. What can he offer the blessed Virgin? The answer is implicit in the title, but even without the element of surprise, The Juggler of Notre Dame is a captivating, heartwarming tale.

Carl Carlsson has about 6 significant juggling scenes.
