Daredevils of the Red Circle. The Daredevils of the Red Circle were created by Barry Shipman and Franklin Adreon (Boroff, Copperhead, The Lightning) and appeared in the film Daredevils of the Red Circle (1939).

The Daredevils of the Red Circle are Gene Townley, Tiny Dawson, and Burt Knowles, a trio of athletic college kids who perform tricks in a sideshow at the Granville Amusement Pier. They become involved in a revenge plot (an escaped convict goes after the millionaire owner of the Amusement Pier) and use their skills—Townley is a high diver, Dawson is a strongman, and Knowles is an escape artist—to capture the convict and avenge the death of Townley’s little brother Sammy.
