Polly of the Circus
Severing all ties with his former partners Adolph Zukor and Jesse Lasky, producer Samuel Goldfish went into partnership with Edgar Selwyn, and the result was the Goldwyn Pictures Company (not to mention a new last name for Mr. Goldfish!) The first official Goldwyn production was Polly of the Circus, a vehicle for one-time Griffith contractee Mae Marsh. The titular Polly travels from town to town as star equestrienne for a three-ring circus. In the course of her travels, she falls in love with handsome minister John Douglas (Vernon Steele). A serious accident which renders her paralyzed sorely challenges Polly's faith in God and Mankind, but with Douglas' help she not only recovers but also wins a high-stakes horse race. Based on a play by Margaret Mayo, Polly of the Circus was remade in 1932, with Marion Davies as Polly and Clark Gable (!) as the minister. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
