It was in Paris in 1927 that he created the miniature circus celebrated in this film. The Parisian avant-garde would gather in Calder's studio to see the circus in operation. This film exudes the great personal charm of Calder himself, moving and working the tiny players like a ringmaster, while his wife winds up the gramophone in the background. The Circus is now housed at the Whitney Museum in New York.
