Barnum (1986)

[Burt Lancaster, Kirsten Bishop, Lorena Gale, Sandor Raski, Rob Roy]

In Burt Lancaster's highly acclaimed portrayal of the circus legend, Phineas T. Barnum looks back at his life, starting when he is just a little boy. This made-for-TV movie shows how he muddled through his life and how he finally became a successful circus master. But to get there he had to risk everything he had and show enormous courage.

Fresh out of Ringling Brothers Clown College, Joel Heidtman appears as a juggler, along with Gene Jones, John Mark St. Jules, and 12-year-old Shane Hanson.
