The Greatest Show on Earth 1952
The Ringling Bros. circus wants to scale back its touring season but tough circus boss Marc Braden (Charlton Heston) uses intimidation to keep a full schedule, provided the show stays in the black. This means kicking aerial star Holly (Betty Hutton) out of the center ring to make way for the famous headliner The Great Sebastian (Cornel Wilde), a womanizer already well acquainted with elephant wrangler Angel (Gloria Grahame). Braden has to contend with this drama while staving off the demands of crooked sideshow gangster Henderson (Lawrence Tierney) and keeping the 'circus army' on the move and ready for the next show. Observing all is Buttons the Clown (James Stewart), who never removes his clown greasepaint and appears to have a guilty secret.
