Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

The unidentified clown with Michelle is Eddie Dullum--but 1952 Ringling? I though Eddie was on the Beatty show for '52...? Maybe someone can nail the show for sure.

Right. Eddie Bruce "Mother" Dullum, who enjoyed saying they wanted to do Mother's story on THIS IS YOUR LIFE, but they couldn't get the Los Angeles Coliseum for all of Mother's husbands.
