Tillies Punctured Romance is a 1928 circus comedy starring W. C. Fields as a ringmaster and Louise Fazenda as a runaway. Written by Monte Brice and Keene Thompson and directed by A. Edward Sutherland, this movie has nothing to do with the revered 1914 Charles Chaplin film aside from sharing the same title. However, Chester Conklin and Mack Swain appear in both films.
The ring master is plotting to get the circus owner done away with in a lion cage so he can take over.
