Well..., 7 March 2005
Author: rbverhoef (rbverhoef@hotmail.com) from The Hague, Netherlands

So this is a promotional short film made in the forties? It is hard to understand how this persuades people to go to the Canadian National Exhibition. It follows a little boy on the exhibition. His parents were not paying attention so they lost him. Now he is having fun on his own. The kid meets some sort of famous people and sees the things to do on the exhibition.

In my opinion this short tells only one thing. It is so very crowded on the exhibition, you easily lose your kid. In other words, if you have kids it is better not to come. But then again, it does show the great things to see there. Right. 'Johnny at the Fair' is just another stupid short film, perfect for the MST3K-people to make fun it.
