Did You Know?


The set used for the home of the Rias family is the set that was used for many seasons of "Father Knows Best." Both the exterior and interior are shown. The furnishings seem to be the same, although the location of the clock is different. It is nice to see the Anderson home in color. See more »

Stop Clowning Around
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At 73 minutes this mishmash is way too long. Clumsily directed by old veteran George Sherman, the thrust here is an arrogant, spoiled aerialist who returns to the circus after a military hitch and causes havoc for everyone with whom he comes into contact. A silly, unconvincing story is not aided by patchwork performances from newcomers Michael Callan and Rian Garrick (although in their tights they may arouse some interest)and first-timer Evy Norland in her only film role. (She is married to actor/singer James Darren if that does anything for you.) Fifties' B-actress Joan Evans also fails to excite. There may be a little variety in watching able character actors John Van Dreelen and Joe DeSantis. If it's a circus movie you're after, Trapeze, Carnival Story, The Greatest Show on Earth and even The Big Circus might be more to your liking.
