English version of the 1937 German film TRUXA
Otto Kruger, John Clement and Gertrude Michael star in this 1938 English production STAR OF THE CIRCUS.

Released in the U.S. in 1940 as HIDDEN MENACE.

The story revolves around Gertrude as a Viennese circus star and her romances with three men.

The story moves quickly with equal measure of romance, drama, comedy,action and danger.

Fortunately, I was able to obtain an excellent 16mm print recently. I have been able to find over 30 years many 16mm prints of Gertrude Michael films.

She had a busy career starting in 1929 with stage director Stuart Walker and then on to Broadway,an MGM contract in 1932, followed by a 1933 contract with Paramount. Unfortunately, her career was blighted by her alcoholism. Despite this, she stayed active for thirty years, moving over mostly to television in the 1950s.
