Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The "carnival girl" of the title is played by Marion Mack, most fondly remembered as Buster Keaton's bird-brained lady love in The General. A fine comedienne in her own right, Mack plays it straight as a tightrope walker in love with navy lieutenant Allan Forrest. Villainous strong man George Siegmann, seething with jealousy, does his best to do in Forrest by setting fire to the lieutenant's ship. Diminuitve Frankie Darro, an accomplished acrobat, co-stars as Marion's limber kid brother. Carnival Girl was directed by Cecil B. DeMille's #1 assistant, Cullen "Hezi" Tate.
