Circus of Fear synopsis

In the wake of a daring armored car heist that ends with the murder of a security guard, police detective Jim Elliott (Leo Genn) follows a trail of clues to the traveling Barberini Circus, which has just passed through London. Though Elliot suspects a conspiracy under the big top, he discovers strained relations between lion tamer Gregor (Christopher Lee) and his associates. Elliot struggles to find his man -- and recover the stolen cash -- in a maze of blackmail and deceit.
