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!

WHO ARE THOSE GUYS, ANYWAY?

Here is another one from Ninette. She thought it could be Detroit, but Hamid-Morton to my knowledge never did Detroit.
The Penn. Shrine Temples had a history of Batchelor Parties,(easy girls), plus the presence of TV Star James Drury,(top center), & Circus Chairman, Obie Obrien,(bottom left), tells me this is Harrisburg, PA. The first question of course is, how many old friends can you identify?
The second is, from what movie did I get, "Who are those guys anyway"?

HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA-1964

Ninette, Gene Hamid!

bruce the clown: You are absolutely right.

David & his wife Denise, & son Triston are in town to shoot a commercial in Ybor City, and at dinner last night I asked him about the quote. He said jokingly, "we just make movies, we don't go see them", then he gave me the answer.
