Bio of Phineas Taylor Barnum (Beau Bridges) and his development of "The Greatest Show on Earth." A shopkeeper from Connecticut, P.T. was determined to make his fortune in New York, eventually purchasing Scudder's American Museum and its exhibits, which he turned into a traveling big top event, thanks to his promotional skills. Barnum's zest for work, however, made for a less than happy home life. Beau's son Jordan plays the young Barnum. Filmed in Montreal and Vancouver, Canada.
