This blog by mikl-em (I played Sugarchurch) features Stuff about carnival sideshows, the 1800's to 1930’s, Vaudeville, clowns, freaks, silent film, or whatever else seems to fit.
One of my all-time favorite perfomers, Danny Kaye singing “Lullaby in Ragtime” from the film “The Five Pennies”. Kaye plays cornetist / bandleader Red Nichols. That’s Barbara Bel Geddes playing his wife. Louis Armstrong also features and Tuesday Weld at 15 played his daughter. via joeyrichtermakesmefeelfunny
