All four stars shine in thbe lavish and colorful musical numbers featuring the sublime songs of Rodgers and Hart. Doris Day delivers a bouncy version of "This Can't Be Love" while performing as a bareback rider, and also sings "Why Can't I" and "Little Girl Blue."

The breathtaking circus footage was actually directed by the legendary Busby Berkeley. Escape to the circus!
