Love Among Thieves (1987)

[Audrey Hepburn, Robert Wagner, Patrick Bauchau, Jerry Orbach]

TV Movie. Original title: Here a Thief, There a Thief. Audrey Hepburn plays a widowed baroness and classical pianist, who steals three Faberge eggs from a museum in order to ransom her kidnapped fiance. En route to the "drop," Audrey is rescued from a mysterious assailant (Jerry Orbach) by suave stranger Robert Wagner. Wagner proceeds to demonstrate that he's not all he seems by swiping the valuable jeweled eggs. The rest of the film is a maelstrom of double-crosses, clinches and hairbreadth escapes.

At 32:04, and for the next 2 minutes on and off, Edward Jackman plays a fire juggling bandito passing torches in front of the kidnapped Audrey Hepburn. The other juggler, who will remain unnamed, was off camera, as he was not capable of passing 6 torches as he claimed when he accepted the role. As a result, he simply attempted to throw Edward as many torches as he could, while he continuously burned himself off camera.
