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 WORLD PREMIERE: THE MOVIE 1974


Since I am limited in the size of videos I can post, and some of the clips I wound up with in capturing from the tape I have were so long, I found it necessary to do a lot of editing, deviding clips into two shorter ones. Also sometimes due to timing in the tape, & my slow reflexes I chopped some beginnings & endings, so bear with me.

Be sure to click the start arrow twice, and be patient with the dark screen, I chose to take my cue from the music rather than the picture.

For some reason some acts were left out, such as the the Horse Riding Tiger, The Elephants, & Al's Lemon-Zine, maybe someday someone will come up with a more complete film.
