The Captain, the Crook, the Live Wire, and the Stow-Away Girl

If there is one phrase that I can still hear my mother saying, it is, “Jimmy, sit still,” in her sternest voice. As a youngster I seemed to be in constant motion. Even sitting in a chair, my legs that were not long enough to reach the floor would merrily swing back and forth, and my body would wave to the tune of whatever was floating through my mind, . . . Until Mom would sternly look at me and command me to sit still. “You are such a live wire, Jimmy, can’t you sit still for even a minute?”

The Barnum and Baily Circus hired a family of acrobats from Switzerland around the turn of the century. In 1917 The Flying Metzettis performed the first ever quadruple backwards somersault high above the big circus ring, amazing audiences around the country.

The Metzetti family discovered Hollywood and movies during their travels with the circus, and soon athletic Silvester was doing stunt work for Douglas Fairbanks and other silent movie actors. Sylvester Metzetti was born in Switzerland in 1892. When he began doing stunt work and getting small parts in motion pictures, he changed his name to Richard Talmadge.

Needless to say, but Richard Talmadge, the live-wire star of this action adventure, did his own stunt work. He also had help from three of his brothers in this story. His brother Leon Metzetti wrote the story, and two of the henchmen helping the bad guys are brother Otto Metzetti and Victor Metzetti. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
