View of Ringling Brothers Circus from Backstage

8/10
Author: ronjaffe from Orlando, Florida

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, Frosty Little.

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.
