[Videolib] HELP! Trapeze plot problem

I'm hoping folks on the list can help me with a patron's question
about a movie he has seen "a couple of time" on late night tv. He
believes it is a film, not sure what time period but "a while ago -
maybe 10 years". He mainly remembers part of the basic plot which is:
a trapze artist has a partner who dies in an accident. He sees a
young girl try to commit suicide by jumping in a river and he fishes
her out. He asks her why she did it and she says she just wants to
die. He tells her "have I got a job for you" and begins training her
for the trapeze.

That's all I've got. I found the episode of The Avengers "Girl on the
Trapeze" and he says that's not it. It is also possible that it's a
foreign film. I've tried IMdb and Videohound, and the film catalog at
UCLA and haven't been able to find much. The only thing I did find
was a film from Hong Kong called "Fei tian nu lang" or "Trapeze
Girl", but so far I haven't found an English summary to see if this
is the film he wants.

I'd really appreciate any ideas you may have.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
