Johnny Puleo does play a little harmonica. Sadly it is portrayed as being a nuisance. At one point he is mimicking that he is playing harp as the sound track plays harp. Again portrayed as a nuisance as they throw something at him. See more »
A classic love-triangle tale set within the backdrop of the French Circus
Curtis was young...Lancaster was in his prime.....The trapeze performances were stunning and despite the predictability of the story, Trapeze was a wonderful movie. Though a little "hokey" at times, and dated perhaps today, the warmth, sincerity, and circus-realism makes this a mild classic!
