~Plot Synopsis~
The circus provides the backdrop for this melodrama that chronicles the lives of four children raised
within the big top. Two of them have grown to be lovers. Though they appear inseparable, trouble
ensues when a usurper takes the girl away. The picture is considered a lost work -- no copies are known
to have survived. It was nonetheless regarded as an excellent film upon release (hence the 3.5 star
rating); a 1928 Variety review proclaimed it "an elegantly produced, photographed, and directed
picture by Fox, of high value regular release quality, and missing the super height class only because it is
missing any one big kick."
