Emmett Kelly's last movie is a real pipping charmer!
13 August 2003 | by StanbabeSee all my reviews

In his last movie.Vetrain clown:Emmett Kelly creates a charming fantsy that is heartwarming,thrilling and funny.The story has Kelly, his two kids and their circus troupe traveling thru Europe to find some small towns to perform in.One town,where they find that they're not welcome is the one runned by an evil mobster:"Jonathan Scragg".Who controlls and abuses everyone in the small village..including the kids.It's to Mr.Kelly's"Weary Willie The Tramp Clown"and his other alter ego"The Piper"to charm the kids into seeing the circus.And then overthrowing the evil "Mr.Scragg"and putting an end to the depressing atmosphere that has linger over the town for years.The story is good and so is Mr.Kelly's acting abilities.The only damper are the songs..which are neither charming,funny,heartfelt or even nessicary.Why songs were added to this film is still unclear? But despite this flaw.."The Clown & The Kids!"is still a happy fairy tale and a happy ending to the long and successful career of one of the entertainment industries most beloved clowns.
