Here is photo that I pulled from my files...
Would like to learn who they are. Maybe someone will get a kick out of seeing these from over 62 years ago.
This alley shot of the clowns listening to a phonograph was taken in April of 1946 on the Clyde Beatty Circus.
Kenneth Waite is the clown in the white ruffles in the foreground.
The clown with his hand to his ear (second from the right) is Pinto Colvig.
I wonder if they are listening to a Bozo record reader?
For those who do not know, Pinto was a circus clown who worked as a gag and voice man for Disney (where he co-wrote the smash hit Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?) and the Max Fleischer studios before moving to Capitol records and becoming the original Bozo the Capitol Clown.
Pinto is the father of Vance Colvig, the KTLA-TV Los Angeles Bozo the Clown who we featured here recently.
