Plot summary
22 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Willie Turner (actor Denny Miller) is a strong young man of subnormal intelligence, whose childish impulses have hurt a child. The police are looking for him to place him in a mental hospital. Willie loves carnivals, and runs to one nearby where Kimble is working. The owner, impressed with Willie's strength, offers him a job, and puts him in Kimble's charge.

Kimble tries to leave him with his sister Mary (actress Collin Wilcox) but she cannot take care of him, and plans to marry next week. This causes Willie to go back to the carnival and Kimble. Willie is violently against any effort to hospitalize him, and the police involvement causes trouble for both Willie and Kimble.
