CLOWN ALLEY: Clown Car, Clyde Beatty Circus (1954)

This looks to be an outtake from Martin & Lewis' final film, Paramount's Three Ring Circus, shot in February and March of 1954 on the Clyde Beatty Circus. It might also be from Ring of Fear which was also shot on the Beatty show in 1954, but that was shot by Warners in Cinema Scope and WarnerColor and this looks to me to be in Paramount's Vista Vision.

I can't identify any of the clowns in the scene except for Larry Cross, the first one out of the car.
