Summary, etc.:
"Flamboyant circus owner "Hank Whiting "is in trouble. His enterprise is in need of a cash injection from the bank who only agree to a loan on the condition their employee "Randy Sherman " goes along to keep an eye on proceedings. When he engages a high powered PR woman, tension develops between the outsiders and the circus hard core. That is not the end of it however--there is sabotage to contend with, rain washes away much of the season, and a fatality occurs during a train crash. Gradually the newcomers absorb the spirit of the circus and do battle with its enemies to rescue the show"--From IMDb.
