Documentary collage celebrating old-school entertainment, from three-ring circuses to burlesque, rodeo riders and public stunts. The high-wire acts are genuinely exciting and there's some stomach-turning footage of child boxers in distress. With no commentary or context, it's a bit repetitive but at best it's an intriguing glimpse into a lost world.
