Early Jean Arthur Talkie
27 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Odd little circus film about trapeze artists and obsessive love.

Jean Arthur stars as Greta, a trapeze star with a traveling circus. The act's "catcher" is the obsessive and mean Nick (Paul Lukas). After a terrible accident, Arthur decides to hide out at a train stop and miss the train. She ends up in a small town where she's taken in at a boarding house. She meets a young man (Buddy Rogers) who happens to running away to the circus. Despite this rather clunky plot twist, Arthur and Rogers are quite good together.

Back at the circus, Nick goes nuts when he realizes that Arthur and Rogers are in love. Nick plans for another accident but Rogers fools him in a neat twist.

Co-stars include Helen Ware as the "all-seeing" fortune teller, Edna West as the boarding house lady, Irving Bacon as Slim, Oscar Apfel as the circus manager, and Nestor Aber as the younger brother.

The trapeze shots are quite good. Worth seeing for Jean Arthur and Buddy Rogers.
