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.
