Once a famous Ziegfeld star, Dodo Delwyn, is reduced to playing clowns in burlesque and amusement parks as a result of his drinking. His son Little Dink idolizes Dodo and faithfully believes in a comeback. He persuades "Uncle" Goldie, Dodo's agent in the good old days, to find a booking for Dodo. He can't, and Dink is sent to live with his remarried-and-wealthy mother, Paula. The unhappy Dink runs back to his father. His welcome return gives Dodo the courage needed to try a knockabout TV show offered by Goldie.Written by

The Stars, Red, Tim nailed it and Esther Williams didn't appear, best of all no disconnected swimming scenes. it's all good
Tim Considine was truly outstanding playing the son of a down and out physical comedy performer. Red is the king of vices, he's a drunk, undependable who gambles away any money he makes down to his sons treasured pocket watch. Considine is the adult encouraging, sometimes chastising his dad. Into the story comes the long list mother and her next husband. Of course they want Dink (Considine) to live with them. At the same time Red's character gets an offer of a 1 hour weekly TV show "The Clown" The story line isn't new, other writers have taken on divided parentage fighting for custody. What sets The Clown apart is the individual preformacers.
