"The Greatest Show on Earth" (1952)

Pure Hollywood hokum. But what fun! C.B. DeMille directs with usual Biblical bombast. The cast features a wooden Charlten Heston, but there's Betty Hutton, Gloria Graham, and Dorothy Lamour as friends/catfighters, Cornel Wilde with a Pepe LePew accent and Jimmy Stewart as a clown with a past. A nifty train wreck finale and Betty sings. A guilty pleasure.
