The great comedy of Jimmy Durante and Martha Raye elevated this above the norm. The kids' favouite moment was the scene where Jimmy was trying to sneak Jumbo away and was asked, " Where are you going with that elephant?". Jimmy's priceless response was , "What elephant?". The kids roared with laughter. Imagine this, a fifty year- old film that produce this kind of emotion.
Regardless of wheter musicals or circus films are in fashion, we are fortunate that Doris, Stephen, Jimmy and Martha put this treasure on film. This is a film that is timeless and has aged well due to great performances, terrific music and great comedy. It was a good story.
What elese does an audience need?
