A bad-tempered husband demands that his sweet, pretty wife stop flirting with men. They're sitting in a bar when Pippo the Clown walks in, distributing balloons that advertise a traveling circus. The young blonde lets the childlike mute pet her silky hair, but the volatile husband is jealous even of a clown. Enraged, he cuts off a piece of her hair and hands it to Pippo. She runs off in tears and winds up in Pippo's trailer. The husband finds her there and uses his scissors again - this time to deadlier effect. Written by
Can You Ever Find a Pair of Scissors When You Need One?
Girlish blonde beauty Yvette Mimieux (as Nonnie) quarrels with jealous husband Christopher Dark (as Tom Regan) when they go out to a bar. In a hugging sweater, Ms. Mimieux garners a lot of male attention, with her innocent sex appeal. When she turns on a passing male, Mr. Dark accuses his wife of flirting; and, she certainly moves like a ticking sex bomb. When Mimieux lets mute carnival clown Mickey Shaughnessy (as "Pippo") caress her soft hair, Dark furiously cuts off a chunk of his wife's tresses and presents it to "Pippo". Distraught, Mimieux (who looks just fine with the hair piece missing) goes to the Mr. Shaughnessy's trailer for laughter and comfort. Dark hears her giggling inside, and thinks something is up with Shaughnessy.
This leads to a tragic confrontation
