BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Born in Bethel and buried in Bridgeport, Phineas T. Barnum left his nothing-short-of-spectacular mark all around the world.

And now you can get a behind-the-scenes peek into the life of the big top businessman in “The Greatest Showman,” a new feature film set to hit theaters on Christmas Day.

Hugh Jackman steps right up to the role of the world’s most famous circus impresario, who has been credited with a slew of memorable mottos — from “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” to “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

The flick — a musical that also stars Zac Ephron and Michelle Williams — chronicles Barnum’s humble beginnings and the creation of his first circus. All the usual suspects are represented from Tom Thumb to the buxom bearded lady.

Michael Gracey directs.
