Virginia and the Lions
30 July 2015 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

After her mother suffers a high-wire mishap, 10-year-old Virginia Weidler (as Ethel "Terry" O'Connell) wants to remain with the "Barvin Greater Shows" circus. She joins lady lion-tamer Peggy Shannon (as Aggie Moreno), but lawmen think the job is too dangerous for a little girl. Another problem surfaces when a couple of shady men arrive and claim ownership of Ms. Shannon's lions. Smooth-talking circus "fixer" Lee Tracy (as Charlie Dugan) takes charge of the problems. There is a rather ordinary story, but Miss Weidler is an appealing child. Adults may have fun watching director Lew Landers and the RKO crew use lion-tamer Shannon's stunt-woman (or, very possibly, stuntman) and special effects in the second half.
