Description by

Day, Durante, Raye - and Rodgers and Hart's songs - raise the big-top roof.

Jumbo is a mighty talented elephant. It's also the ideal word to describe this big-time, big-top extravaganza bursting with laughter and love, song and dance, circus stunts and star power.

Radiant Doris Day sings beloved Rodgers and Hart tunes and does her own horseback riding tricks in a razzle-dazzle musical based on Billy Rose's stage spectacular and featuring circus sequences directed by Busby Berkeley. The story revolves around a circus owner (Jimmy Durante, star of the 1935 Broadway original) with only two real attractions: his daughter (Day) and popular pachyderm Jumbo. Three-ring pandemonium breaks out when a handsome rival (Stephen Boyd) infiltrates the circus, and father, daughter and Dad's wisecracking fiancee (Martha Raye) are suddenly at risk of losing the greatest show on earth!

Product Description:

Day stars as Kitty Wonder, the daughter of a circus owner in desperate straits. The ages-old circus tale gets lively with the songs of Rogers and Hart, and Busby Berkeley's production numbers. Scripted by Hecht and MacArthur. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Adapted) Score.

Plot Synopsis:

Doris Day stars as Kitty Wonder, the daughter of a circus owner in this film adaptation of the Rogers and Hart, depression era musical.
