What a magical time in the lives of Sarasota’s citizens to have Hollywood film crews and motion picture stars working alongside ‘their’ circus in their seaside town. Sit back and view this short video of the filming.
The Florida Theatre premiered the film in 1952. This is artist, d.a. gordon dart’s rendering of the theatre as it appeared in the fifties. Today this building houses Sarasota’s renowned Opera. To view more of the artist’s work visit: http://www.dagdart.com.
