"Gene Kelly brings his remarkable talents as star, director and choreographer to this glittering gala of music, dance and pantomime--and the result is a lush, one-of-a-kind musical flight of fancy. In Circus, a clown (Kelly) in a small carnival troupe is hopelessly in love with the show's high-wire walker. Ring around the rosy is a satiric tale about a bracelet which travels from the wrist of one fickle lover to another. Sinbad the sailor blends live action and animation as Kelly dances his way into an Arabian nights world after rubbing Aladdin's lamp"--Container.
