Plot Summary
The arrival of a circus raises eyebrows in a tiny New England town. When gorgeous trapeze artist Polly Fisher (Marion Davies) discovers that the racy billboards for her show have been painted over, she accuses local minister John Hartley (Clark Gable) of censorship. That night, an angry Fisher falls during a performance -- only to awaken in a makeshift recovery room in Hartley's home. As the minister cares for the wounded Fisher, the two begin to fall in love. But what will the town think?
