We are sorry to announce that the last remaining copy of the originally scheduled film, "The Greatest Show on Earth," has deteriorated to the point that Paramount would not release it.  A nationwide search among film archivists turned up this rarely seen gem starring one of the most popular comedy duos ever.

John Monaghan, movie critic for the Detroit Free Press, called the discovery of a private copy of
3 Ring Circus "an exciting thing."  

This print of 3 Ring Circus may be the only one in existence and this film is not available on video.


Advance tickets purchased for "The Greatest Show On Earth" will be honored for this event.
