In 1923, child actor Jackie Coogan produced a real circus for local children on the film set of Toby Tyler, or Ten Weeks with the Circus. The April 1923 issue of the New Near East magazine praised relief worker Miss Jessie Way, newly returned from Smyrna and Constantinople, as Jackie’s “chief and most willing assistant.” The circus was attended by 7,500 people who contributed $3,500 in clothing and condensed milk.
