Starring Syd Chaplin in the drama Carnival

As the proprietor of a travelling circus 'Tiger' Hudson needs to be on the best of terms with the local townsfolk, and he isn't backward in using his charm to boost box-office takings. But this can and does lead to misunderstandings, and in one case, to near tragedy.
