Trapeze Artist
14 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Mike Connors stars as volatile circus performer Mario Petrusscio, who belongs to a family of trapeze artists, and finds himself at odds with his father, who openly disapproves of his young wife Carlotta(played by Yvette Vickers) who clearly has no respect for any of them. This angers Mario, and leads to disaster when his father has a near-fatal plunge during a show, and lays near death in a hospital. Guilt-ridden, Mario vows to never take up the trapeze again, but is unable to find other work, and with no where else to go, takes to the ring again to appease his father, who offers a most unexpected helping hand... Good cast makes this predictable episode work well.
