Davis, Janet M. Circus Queen and Tinker Bell: The Memoir of Tiny Kline. University of Illinois Press, 2008. This memoir follows the life and career of circus performer Tiny Kline (1891-1964) from the burlesque house to the circus tent, and on to Disneyland and the silver screen. While working for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Kline became well known for her slide for life and iron jaw act in which she slid to the ground while dangling from trapeze rigging by her teeth. Kline renewed her spectacular acrobatics at the age of seventy when she played Tinker Bell in the fireworks show at Disneyland.
