SUMMARY
During the stone-age the Stonehenge Circus entertained cavemen and women. The circus had a dinosaur that doubled as a trampoline and tightrope for the acrobats.

Illustrator and marionettist Tony Sargs Almanac series (1921-23) showcased his mastery of an archaic form, the shadow silhouette. Co-animator Herbert Dawley had produced Willis OBriens post-Edison claymations of prehistoric animals, and some influence or common interest is apparent here. The color tints are copied from an original print.

CREATED/PUBLISHED
United States : [Dawley Prods.?, 1921].

NOTES
