My Father The Circus King – A documentary film

The elephants have left the circus and Gunther Gebel-Williams has left us too. BUT!

We have this documentary about this life and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus.

The 1981 documentary produced by Kevin Eggers and Robert Elfstrom for Feld Entertainment, owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, features legendary animal trainer Gunther Gebel-Williams. This VHS capture was recorded off-air as broadcast by the NBC Television Network in 1985 on its weekday after-school children’s series, “Special Treat.”
