Cast & Crew
Erle C. Kenton
Queenie Parker, the junior member of a family trapeze act, is forced to find work in a sideshow when her parents become too old to perform. Assisting a fakir in a basket trick, Queenie is resentful of her lowly status, and the sideshow freaks make her life miserable. A series of accidents befall the sideshow (a trapeze breaks; a pay wagon explodes), and P. W. Melrose, the midget who owns the sideshow, comes to suspect barker Ted Rogers of trying to sabotage the outfit. Queenie, however, discovers that the fakir is the culprit employed by a rival circus to put Melrose out of business. Melrose kills the fakir, and Rogers is cleared. Having fallen in love with Queenie, Melrose must nevertheless stand by--a sad, mute witness to her love for Rogers.
