The bishop's wife
The year before,Gable had been a salvation army officer ("the laughing sinners") ;in "Polly of the circus" ,he took the plunge and became a minister .Like the precedent work ,it has not aged as well as "possessed" in which Gable played opposite Joan Crawford ,or even "men in white" .The problem is Gable's clergyman uncle who is not prepared to accept an acrobat (of the circus)as his niece :his nephew 's career -he went to college so he should become a bishop- would be in jeopardy and he would be relegated to selling Bibles for about twenty-five measly dollars a week.The best scenes are to be found in the circus ,complete with somersaults (without a safety net)
