Produced in 1962, this is recognized as one of the greatest documentaries ever produced about the circus. Host EMMETT KELLY escorts you on a guided tour through the wonderful world of sawdust and spangles. Go behind the scenes and meet show business legends like LA NORMA FOX, FAY ALEXANDER, and several others. Savor rare film clips and stills dating back to the 1920's, along with up-to-date footage of the CLYDE BEATTY-COLE BROS. CIRCUS rolling across the road from town to town. If you own only one documentary about the circus of yesterday, make it this one! Recommended! Approx. 50 minutes, B&W.
