When you think of a circus lion tamer, you think of a quick-witted, whip-cracking man in jodhpurs and a pith helmet -- and the man you're thinking of was named Clyde Beatty. The prototypical circus trainer of his generation, Beatty was also a master of promotion who never missed a chance to advertise his personal brand. The Clyde Beatty Show came to broadcast syndication in 1950 in rousing jungle adventures loosely based on Beatty's real-life experiences. Beatty himself didn't appear on the program, bringing in deft radio actor Vic Perrin to take his part, but he made sure the program offered plenty of rip-snorting excitement in every episode.
