Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

CIRCUS AMERICA: SWAY POLES & CANNON

THE NERVELESS NOCKS AND THE FEARLESS BAUERS

ZACCHINI'S HUMAN MISSLE ROCKET CANNON
There was a change after the program was printed & the Wainrights did not make the date, a single jump was made by Paul Creason.



THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING THE WORLD PREMIERE PRESENTATION OF, "CIRCUS AMERICA"
I would advise checking this site once in a while because I will be adding to it as stories come to mind.

What a strong show. As I recall Abe Pollin was having a feud with Irvin Feld and this show ran opposite RBBB.

What year was this show?

John: Yes, The news media covered it extensively, like an old fashioned Circus War. It was our understanding at the time there was a disagreement over concessions. The year was 1974.

Fatima: Your comments are all the pay I need.

What an incredible line up of acts! I, of course, am in awe of the aerial acts all on the same show. Look how many heel and toe trapeze performers!
