Carnival Love

Do you think that you are weird, funny . . . different from the 'perfect' people? Is your nose too big, are your eyebrows to bushy, are your feet too big . . . or too small? When I was a youngster I was convinced that my ears stuck straight out from my head like a clown. I was so convinced that everyone must be staring at my funny ears that while sitting at my school desk I would often rest my head in either my left or right hand and make sure that the open palm of my hand was firmly pressing my ear back against my head. When I would lay down to sleep at night I would turn my head to the side and be very careful that the pillow would push my ear tightly against my head. It took me many years to discover that each of us is perfectly different . . . perfectly unique . . . and perfectly wonderful . . . no matter what our perceived physical faults are . . . The only really perfect person in the world is . . . Every One of Us. This movie tells the story of two people in love . . . and the title is totally misleading. In 1955 it was probably very dangerous to produce a love story like this, and even today it might be somewhat awkward to produce a movie about two men in love . . . not a physical love, but the love that two souls can build that is more than respect, a love that two brothers or two sisters . . . or two different men could find . . . the real bff kind of love (for you old timers that are not into smart phone texting, bff is text shorthand for best friends forever). In this remarkable story the two 'lovers' are carnival side show owner Joe Harrop, played by George Baker, and George Wilson, played by Jimmy Karoubi. Sure, there is a girl involved, and Diane Cilento, as dumb blonde Mary, becomes the triangle in this love story, coming between the two men who are truly best friends forever. When this movie was released Diane Cilento was given top billing, with George Baker as second billing, and the amazing Jimmy Karoubi got third billing . . . But for my money, and I'm betting you will agree after watching, that billing order should have been reversed. So now forget about your nose, your feet, your chins, your hands, or whatever else bothers you . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
