Poll: What Is the Greatest Circus Movie?

What is the greatest movie about circuses? (Eventhough, I did include only 1 television show that is set in a traveling circus.) No traveling carnival movies. All the films (and 1 tv show) are 6.0 or better.

If you want to see another circus show listed, or stand up and applaud any already on the list, as circus barkers used to say, “Step right up and get your ticket here”.

    Bronco Billy (1980)

    This is really a Wild West show. But then some consider them the same as a circus. I don’t know why but they were.

    Circus Boy (1956)

    Okay, this is a television show and a good one at that. The interesting part about it is that the boy is Mickey Dolenz who is known as the drummer and co-lead singer of The Monkees. That makes two members of the group that were actually actors when that group was created. The other is Davy Jones who played The Artful Dodger in the Broadway musical “Oliver!”.
