Congratulations from Brazil !!!
26 February 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Hi, everybody ! It was incredible find this special site about movies, because I used to watch The Great Wallendas with Lloyd Bridges as Karl and the marvelous other actors and actresses on TV here in Brazil every time they presented it. This was some 25 years ago when I was just a child! I remember very well that I used do involve myself so deep inside the film, crying when sad moments occurred for them. I loved them all. The whole family! My sincere congratulations for both special work: to the movie, which brought us the possibility to know this fabulous story and to the real Wallendas work which is going on so far! They are really great! Regina Celia Sombini Salto-SP-BRAZIL
