Well I just watched the load of drivel that was The Greatest Show on Earth. It amazes me that this film won Best Picture. It was nothing more than a 2 hour advertisement for the circus. The only redeeming value was Charlton Heston. There was no real plot, just multiple 15 minute scenes of circus acts interspersed with horrible dialogue.

The Greatest Show on Earth? Not by a long shot.
