This Rogers and Hart musical revolves around a debt-ridden circus and the struggle to save it. The popularity of the Hollywood musical-movie was on the wane by the time this movie was released. As a result of moviegoers changing tastes this picture seriously underperformed at the box-office. Although it missed the boat commercially it did deliver a beautiful soundtrack of songs which received an Oscar nomination for Best (Adapted) Score.

Director(s): Charles Walters
Producer(s): Joe Pasternak & Martin Melcher
Studio: MGM  (USA)
Colour (Metrocolor-PanaVision)
This film was also known as Jumbo
