The Devil's Circus is a 1926 silent drama film directed by Danish director Benjamin Christensen, based upon his screenplay. The film stars Norma Shearer and Charles Emmett Mack. It was the first of seven films directed by Christensen in the United States, and one of only four of those films that have not been lost.
Mary and Carlstop are a trapeze artist and a pickpocket who get themselves almost fatally involved with Lieberkind, a lion-tamer, and his jealous wife Yonna.
