Product Description

Meet Me At The Fair (1953)


Douglas Sirk    


Martin BerkeleyGene Markey (novel)


Dan DaileyDiana LynnChet Allen      
Despite its ebullient title and the presence of lightweight dancing star Dan Dailey, Meet Me at the Fair has a lot more meat on its bones than most musicals of the early 1950s. Dailey plays an early-1900s medicine show huckster who finds himself the reluctant guardian of orphanage escapee Chet Allen. As he grows fond of the boy, Dailey becomes determined to thwart the corrupt system that allows substandard orphan asylums to operate while political hacks get rich on government funding. Dailey wins the confidence (and love) of orphan committee member Diana Lynn, who helps to foil the machinations of crooked district attorney Hugh O'Brien. The darker aspects of Meet Me at the Fair are lightened by director Douglas Sirk's marvelous recreations of backstage life at the turn of the century. The film is also a special treat for fans of Scatman Crothers, who is never less than terrific as Dan Dailey's sidekick.

  1. Great Dan Dailey movie 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 22nd 2020

    The dvd quality is excellent. The movie is very good. Dan Dailey and
    Scatman Carothers are a great team. This is an “under the radar” movie
    that is an essential movie if you are a fan of either actor. Plus the boy has
    a wonderful voice.
