While his fellows are on strike once again, he decides to try his luck in show-biz meanwhile. His first appearance on stage goes all wrong - but the audience loves him anyways. So he starts as a comedian in a traveling amateur show for $50 a night. One day he gets an offer from an ad director from Hollywood and flies to America, expecting a great career... and again leaving behind his pregnant young wife. Written by Tom Zoerner See less
