The title and previews to this documentary made it seem a bit haunting and eerie. It's about a man-wife dance team (over a 30 year span) who decided to add cats (tigers, jaguars, leopards, etc.) to their act. It's billed as a tragedy as well as a weird love/sex-triangle, so that offbeat oddness drew my curiosity.

Overall, the show felt a bit voyeuristic - I felt that I was peering in on the personal lives of some odd show-biz people. The grainy, old film clips of them just added to that imagery. There were ultimately 3 of them (a young fellow later joined them) and their lives were centered around entertaining, caring for their exotic cats and living with each other.

Besides the feeling of voyeurism, I'm not sure what I ultimately got out of the show - besides the obvious idea that dealing with wild cats is dangerous ... and that the ménage à trois lifestyle was alive and well with these people. It was interesting, but felt a little too long (too many unnecessary details) for the story that they were telling.
