Movie Info

Love and circuses drive this melodrama hailing from Stalin-era Russia. Marion Dixon is an American vaudeville performer managed by dastardly German Von Kneischitz. Between target-shooting from her trapeze, she falls in love with a square-jawed member of the Soviet proletariat. Will the beautiful trapeze artist join the Communist cause or will the evil capitalist stain her good name? ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Circus (Tsirk)

All Critics (1)

A touching tale of tolerance from Russia circa 1936 that doesn't deserve to be dismissed as propaganda but rather elevated as a refreshing and more-enlightened alternative to the racist depictions of blacks that Hollywood was cranking out at the same time
