Ho-Hum
26 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Boring melodrama about a family of circus performers. I only watched it for Esther Williams and I was sorely disappointed she has little to do but play the rich lady slumming with Cliff Robertson. If these were the kinds of roles she was being offered, it's no surprise Esther would retire from the screen a couple of years later. The story is uninteresting. Good son (Robertson), bad son (Robert Vaughn), hard-to-please father (Nehemiah Persoff). It's a variation on "House of Strangers" and not the least bit exciting. All in all, a mediocre film that's instantly forgettable. I can't recommend it as anything other than a sleep aid.
