Here, magician Mac Ronay ignores
beautiful women to focus on unlinking his rings.
Germain Sauvard was a French acrobat, actor, comedian and magician who performed under the name Mac Ronay. He's like the bastard love-child of Carl Ballantine and Jacques Tati (both of whom you should be more familiar with.) I love his subtle jittery style - it gets funnier when you watch him over and over.
