In this tragicomedy based on MGM's classic The Champ, Red Skelton portrays Dodo Delwyn, a once-great comedian whose gambling and boozing have reduced him to fairground clowning. Tim Considine plays Dodo's eight-year old son, who is wise beyond his years. He inspires Dodo to strive again for stardom...this time in that exciting new medium called television.
Red Skelton plays a rare dramatic role as a clown whose life was shattered by alcoholism. After losing his wife to divorce and almost his son's love as well, he makes a desperate attempt to straighten out his life.
