Some scenes from Fellini's film with new music by Evelina Lewen.
Can someone tell me if any of the performers in these scenes have an actual circus pedigree? I've never seen any of them outside of the film.
Fellini's assertion that "clowning is dead" isn't really supported when you realize that Popov, Nikulin, Karandash and others were still working in Russia; Charlie Rivel, Charlie Cairoli, The Rastellis, Joe Jackson Jr, Annie Fratellini and Pierre Etaix (just to name a few) were still working in Europe and Lou Jacobs, Emmett Kelly, Mike Coco, Mark Anthony and many others were still working in the States when the film was made. Ringling had just opened it's Clown College! In fact, clowning was extremely healthy and would have made for a far more interesting film if he'd taken that as a premise.
