| The Performance of 'Little Billy' Rhodes' career
This is a solid, entertaining drama from veteran director Erle C. Kenton. But the standout is a superb performance from 'Little Billy' Rhodes as the owner of a circus who is hopelessly in love with a 'normal-sized' woman and doesn't do anything about it. Rhodes brings out the despair and strength of this man who can be tough and demanding and tragic -- all within seconds in a scene. A great job in a good film. One wonders if Tod Browning saw this movie and maybe was inspired a little for his classic "FREAKS".
