The delightful Winnie Lightner stars in this comedy-drama as Pat, a traveling carnival troupe member who does everything from high diving to hula dancing, with time left over to romance meek and mild Sidney (Charles Butterworth) and try to save her younger sister, Irene (Evelyn Knapp), from a lecherous carny barker. The slapstick big-top finale is a highlight.

was in studio records/casting call lists and reviews for the role of "The Great Santini," but that role was played by Vince Barnett
. One may wonder what other changes were made, since Tom Ricketts

. Neither Ricketts nor Hoffman have any lines in the Turner library print, which ran 64 minutes. See more
