A new tightrope walker, Sam, joins the circus and immediately catches the single Kitty's eye and heart. The movie is filled with music and dance and romance. A family-friendly movie, all ages can enjoy. Real circus performers and Doris Day's own stunts lend a real authentic feel to the film. Almost like being at a real circus! The tension comes from the beloved father-daughter pair from keeping the Wonder Circus from foreclosure. They are way behind on paying their bills and the bill collectors are hounding them to pay up or else!
