Les Fratellini were three French, Italian-born circus clowns. They were members of the Fratellini Family. Their engagement at the Circus Medrano in Paris, France, after World War I was so successful that it sparked a strong resurgence of interest in the circus. The wit, charm, and superb acting techniques of the three Fratellini brothers were widely admired. By 1923, the Fratellini brothers had become the darlings of the Parisian intellectuals. They were lauded in print and worshipped by adoring fans who would show up at the circus just in time for the Fratellini entree, which sometimes ran as long as forty-five minutes. The three brothers starred together in the French silent film Rêves de clowns (René Hervouin, Madame Vigier de Maisonneuve, 1924) in which they played three famous clowns who are puzzled by a single woman in the audience who seems to find their act not funny.

Charles Morton (1908-1966) was a good-looking American film and television actor. His film career started as a leading man in the silent era in films by John Ford and Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau. Morton continued into sound features and finally acted on television.

Charles Morton was born in 1908 in Illinois, USA. Morton spent his adolescence in Madison, Wisconsin, and received his education at Madison High School and the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He made his first stage appearance at the age of seven and later appeared in vaudeville, stock, and the legitimate stage. His polished physical appearance, charm, and personality were noted by the studios and at the age of 19 signed his first contract with Fox in 1927. Audiences first discovered the handsome youth that same year opposite the studio's leading flapper, Madge Bellamy, in Colleen (Frank O'Connor, 1927), one of the era's many comedy dramas. Morton went on to star in John Ford's World War I silent film Four Sons (1928). Morton was also a member of the ultimately tragic circus troupe in F. W. Murnau's near-classic 4 Devils, among the most mourned of the lost films of the silent era. Morton also starred in Fox's None but the Brave (Albert Ray, 1928).

In 1931, Charles Morton married Lya Lys, but the marriage ended in divorce some months later, not long after the birth of their daughter. Later a dispute over alimony payments would see Morton spending a few days behind bars. After 1933 with the widespread use of sound film, Morton's career began to lose momentum; and by 1936 his roles were significantly reduced, playing minor roles on television until his death from heart disease in 1966, at the age of 58. Even though Charles Morton's career continued into the mid-1960s, almost all of his roles after 1933 were so minor he was left uncredited for the majority of his performances.
