View of Ringling Brothers Circus from Backstage
ronjaffe from Orlando, Florida
29 March 2011
Produced in conjunction with Walt Disney Pictures, this documentary
shows the backstage and preparation for the Greatest Show on Earth.
Very insightful and shows just how much work goes into producing the
circus...at least back in the early 1980s. A great documentary for
those interested in circus history as well as for those interested in
running away to join the circus. Many legendary performers can be seen
in the film, including one of Ringling's greatest all-time clowns,
The film follows Irvin Feld around as he personally looks at and
approves each act, actor/actress and the sequence of acts within the
overall show. You hear lots of candid conversations, likes and
dislikes. You also hear from the talents themselves as they share
personal stories and concerns about their own performances.
