Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally titled Croquette, Monkeynuts represents the one-time-only collaboration between British actress Betty Balfour and French director Louis Mercanton. Balfour plays the curiously named title character, a concessions girl with a travelling circus. "Monkeynuts" aspires to be a trapeze artist, but this will never happen so long as the troupe's jealous star aerialist has anything to say about it. Eventually, of course, the heroine does get her chance on the high wire -- a sequence that had to be extensively doubled because Balfour was recovering from a bout of pneumonia. Walter Butler provides the traditional romantic interest.
