The Greatest Show On Earth

The Greatest Show on Earth was film directed by the famous Cecil B. DeMille and has an all-star cast including Charlton Heston, Betty Hutton, Cornel Wilde, Dorothy Lamour and even a young Jimmy Stewart. The movie won 2 Oscars, one being Best Picture of 1952. The movie is all about a circus that is failing and needs money desperately so they hire extra acts in order to make more profit. They hire the infamous "Great Sebastion" (Cornel Wilde) and he causes a lot of trouble among the circus folk. Stories keep unfolding through the movie about each character as the circus travels. Eventually the FBI starts chasing someone in the circus but you will have to watch the movie to find out who. The story is full of comedy and twists and I hope you enjoy it. Now Rotten Tomatoes currently rates it at a 41% which I think is an injustice towards the movie but I know once you watch it you will put in your all time favorites category.


  1. Yo. You spelled "DeMille" wrong.

  2. AND. Jimmy Stewart wasn't that young in 1952 lol.

  3. I suppose. I just kept thinking of Philadelphia Story, which was 1940 lol
