To ensure a full profitable season, circus manager Brad Braden engages The Great Sebastian, though this moves his girlfriend Holly from her hard-won center trapeze spot. Holly and Sebastian begin a dangerous one-upmanship duel in the ring, while he pursues her on the ground. Subplots involve the secret past of Buttons the Clown and the efforts of racketeers to move in on the game concessions. Let the show begin! Written by

The unsolved crime Buttons the clown was wanted for, was for killing his ailing wife. A newspaper page, that Ruth the elephant nearly ate, reveals it as (in red letters & in a 2 line title) Top line: "He Killed the Thing He Loved". Lower line: "then vanished--WHERE IS HE TODAY?" would show, but the page had a tear on the page where the question mark belongs. See more »

I know that some people are down on this movie, but I absolutely LOVE it. It has great ideals and good (not great) acting. It tells a story about the circus in a pseudo-documentary. The story has love, action, and humor. Three things that are missing from much of today's movie. I also love the color and the dramatic "feel" of the film for that era. It's a wonderful, wonderful, piece of 'Americana'.
