The Big Cage is a 1933 American pre-Code circus film released by Universal Pictures, starring Clyde Beatty and Anita Page and featuring Raymond Hatton, Wallace Ford, Andy Devine and Mickey Rooney, with Walter Brennan and Louise Beavers in bit parts.
The movie was the film debut of Beatty, whose skills as a lion tamer in circuses had brought him fame since his late teens and made him a national celebrity. As in his three subsequent films, he plays a fictionalized version of himself, also named Clyde Beatty. The movie proved to be one of the studio's most popular releases in 1933 and was reissued several times in second-run theaters into the early 1950s.
