Twelfth century Lombardy lies under the iron heel of German overlord Count Ulrich, The Hawk, but in the mountains, guerrillas yet resist. Lighthearted swashbuckling, plus romantic interludes with lovely hostage Anne.

In the last 20 minutes of the film, many circus arts are featured, in addition to the juggling scenes described below, including dog balancing, broom balancing, blowing fire, lots of acrobatics, and walking on a pole.

At 1:08:16, 2 men pass 3 clubs for 9 seconds.

At 1:13:53, and for the next minute, there are 3 shots of juggling in the background, with 3 balls and 3 clubs, with both in cascades and showers.

At 1:21:46, someone juggling 3 wooden clubs uses shoulder throws to launch them at his enemies.
