  • 5 stars "Excellent movie. As a kid, I tried seeing the circus show whenever came to town. As an adult I took my grandson with me to enjoy the variety of shows this type of entertainment offered, never suspected that it will disappear eventually. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to see how it all developed. I’m even thinking about purchasing the DVD whenever it gets available."
  • 5 stars "Very well done. Keep one interested all the way through the film. The music well done an also the story. The breaded lady had a voice in a half. A movie is one you would watch again and again."
