An audacious use of flashbacks within flashbacks contributes to the feverish, hallucinatory tone of this lurid melodrama about a circus performer (the enigmatic Zita Johann) who becomes the mistress of an ambitious politician. Accused of a murder she did not commit, she prepares to die in the electric chair. (Phil Goldstone, 1933, 65 minutes)

Before the feature: Hearst Metrotone News, vol. 4, no. 269 (1933, 9 minutes), and Balloon Land (Ub Iwerks, 1935, 7 minutes)
