Inscription.  

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, the live entertainment circus spectacular, was brought to the big screen by movie director Cecil B. DeMille in “The Greatest Show on Earth.” The winner of the 1952 Academy Award for Best Picture, the film captured the exceptional spirit of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey life and immortalized America’s living national treasure. The critically acclaimed classic film brought children of all ages out in droves, making it the top-grossing film of 1952. Much of the film was shot on location in Sarasota and included many real-life Ringling stars of the day.
