The son of stage actors, Pennsylvania-born Karl Brown was far more intrigued by the technical aspects of show business; while still in his teens, he became a lab assistant, then a still photographer. Brown turned director in the mid 1920s. The classic feature film 'Under The big Top' is one of his most celebrated directional ventures, in which his eye for detail is evident. A2ZCDS brought this old Hollywood Classic feature film to DVD in 2005.

THE PLOT: The Post Combined Circus draws the biggest crowd ever when pretty Penelope (Anne Nagel) does her heart-stopping blindfolded trapeze act In the course of events she falls in love with Pablo (Grant Richards), her co-artist. Pablo and his brother Ricardo (Jack La Rue) are shown the door when Sara Post (Marjorie Main), the tough talking owner of the show and Penny's aunt, finds out. The show goes on, but it is never the same without the daredevilry of the famous aerial trio.

Condition: Very good. (Click on image above for close-up of cover).
