- Synopsis / Plot
- Alonzo, one of the star attractions of Zanzi's gypsy circus, is an "armless wonder" who hurls knives with his feet at his attractive assistant Nanon, Zanzi's daughter. In reality, Alonzo is a perfectly armed thief, with the unique distinction of having two thumbs on one hand. He keeps his secret with the aid of his midget friend, Cojo, who ties his arms behind him with a corset. Nanon, having been pawed over by men for years, has developed a perverse hatred of the touch of men's hands. She feels quite comfortable around the "armless" Alonzo, while she is repelled by the virile strongman, Malabar. One night, after a row with Zanzi over Nanon, Alonzo strangles him, and Nanon sees only the double-thumbed hand of the murderer.
