EMMET KELLY SHOW
From 1963

Remember when you were a kid?
The shows you used to rush home from school to watch?

HERE IS A RARE JEWEL FROM 1963
THE EMMET KELLY SHOW

This rare episode (#25) from 1963, is from the original film in my personal collection. It stars Emmet Kelly, the world’s most famous clown, doing his many clown routines as well as the original cartoons.
=============================================================

Emmett Kelly was an American circus performer, who created the memorable clown figure "Weary Willie," based on the hobos of the Depression era.

Kelly started working as a clown full-time in 1931 as "Weary Willie", a tragic figure: a clown, who could usually be seen sweeping up the circus rings after the other performers. He tried but failed to sweep up the pool of light of a spotlight. His routine was revolutionary at the time: traditionally, clowns wore white face and performed slapstick stunts intended to make people laugh. Kelly did perform stunts too—one of his most famous acts was trying to crack a peanut with a sledgehammer—but as a tramp, he also appealed to the sympathy of his audience.

From 1942–1956 Kelly performed with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, where he was a major attraction, though he took the 1956 season off to perform as the mascot for the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team. He also landed a number of Broadway and film roles, including the role of "Willie" in Cecil B. DeMille's The Greatest Show on Earth (1952). He also appeared in the Bertram Mills Circus.

Emmett Kelly died at the age of 80 of a heart attack on March 28, 1979, at his home in Sarasota, Florida.

THIS LONG LOST TV EPISODE IS A VERY RARE PART OF TV HISTORY

==============================================================
This episode in this collection is in the Public Domain and was recorded at the 1hr speed for the best quality as a direct transfer from the original film.

This DVD is recorded at the 1hr per disc speed for the best quality. I do not cram 6-10 hours of shows on a disc and sell them for cheap. If that's what you want, those discs are available elsewhere! All my DVDs have episode titles on the menu. I use Name Brand Discs, not cheap, 'no-name on the disc' DVDs because I believe quality is important.

I cannot accept returns for refund for any reason but I will replace ANY defective disc with same content upon return.
