The Big Number or The Big Act (German: Die große Nummer) is a 1943 German drama film directed by Karl Anton and starring Leny Marenbach, Maly Delschaft and Paul Hoffmann.[1] A circus film, it was originally intended to star Harry Piel but due to delays on Panic he withdrew from the project, although he had contributed to the screenplay. Location shooting took place at the Circus Sarrasani in Dresden. The film's sets were designed by the art director Willy Schiller. It was one of three entertainment-focused films playing in Berlin at the time of the Sportpalast speech by Joseph Goebbels calling for total war.[2]
