In the fight scene between the knife thrower and the head of the circus the two actors were rolling around in the elephant area and on the circus floor, but five minutes when the manager is talking to the midget and smoking a cigarette his brown sport coat looks like it came from the cleaners.

Two years ago he was involved in a serious accident and very badly scarred. He carries on the act in the family tradition but never without the mask.

Don't be fooled by the credits, Lee is not the main star in this one.
This movie would lead you to believe that Christopher Lee is the main star, but he is not in it all that much. He is in this one more than he was in "Scream and Scream Again", but for most of his scenes he is wearing a hood. This movie was sort of good, sort of bad. The opening of the movie was messed up on the copy I got as scenes skipped here and there and the sound was messed up too, but as the movie went along it got better. This movie first shows a complicated armored truck robbery in to much detail. It then shifted to the circus where the police tracked some of the money. In the circus we meet all sorts of strange characters; any number of them could be responsible for the robbery and a murder that took place on circus grounds. Of course, the movie leads you to believe this or that person committed the crime and each time they usually clear the person of the crime. Could have been better, but it could have been worse it was somewhat interesting. Has to be one of the only movies ever to end with a little person being fired.
