The Man on the Flying Trapeze was to some degree a remake of a previous Fields film, the feature Running Wild. However, as usual with Fields, the end result doesn't have much resemblance to the original, partly due to Fields' usual technique of extensive ad-libbing.

      "Man on the Flying Trapeze is the story of an artist whose greatest creation was himself - a fully achieved, imaginary person, who was to subsume his creator. It is the saga of a performer, which begins when the horseless carriage was still an amazing invention, and ends in the jet age. Man on the Flying Trapeze Once I was happy, but now I'm forlorn, Like an old coat that is tattered and torn; Left in this wide world to weep and to mourn, Betrayed by a maid in her teens. Now this girl that I loved, she was handsome, And I tried all I knew her to please, But I never could please her one quarter so well As the man on the flying.
