The Greatest Show on Earth is a lavish tribute to circuses. To ensure a full profitable season, circus manager Brad Braden (Charlton Heston) engages The Great Sebastian (Cornel Wilde), though this moves his girlfriend Holly (Betty Hutton )from her hard-won center trapeze spot. Holly and Sebastian begin a dangerous one-upmanship duel in the ring. Subplots involve the secret past of Buttons the Clown (James Stewart ) and the efforts of racketeers to move in on the game concessions. The movie won Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Story.
