Filmed in Hollywood for the General Electric Theater in 1955, this wonderful dramatization of the life of EMMETT KELLY (portrayed by HENRY FONDA) is an outstanding piece of early television history. It co-stars DOROTHY MALONE and is hosted by RONALD REAGAN. A special bonus short feature is also included on this disc: a clip from the JACKIE GLEASON SHOW (cir. 1956) -- "CIRCUS BIG TIME" with HUGH O'BRIEN and featuring EMMETT KELLY. Terrific! Approx. 48 minutes, B&W.
