Memories of a legendary playland Dec 21 2007
By Big John - Published on
I saw the film at the Coney Island Film Festival and feel it could become a cult classic for those who visited the place in years past. I am aware that Coney Island will be closing forever soon and thought that ownership of the film will memorialize the fond memories people have of this legendary playland which includes the "Tales" of the sideshow that will be lost to future generations. It represents a culture of people that is little understood but which greatly impacted on the evolving entertainment media of today. I highly recomend it.

American Carny Jan. 9 2008
By Bruce - Published on
This is a documentary about a form of entertainment that is disappearing from America. American Carny brings back memories of the type of acts that I saw as a teenager at the NJ State Fair when I was growing up.
Todd Robbins is the foremost historian on the subject of Circus Sideshow acts, and is also an amazing performer.
The director Nick Basile and his crew did a great job on this film.

Fantastic March 3 2009

This is my favorite DVD on the sideshow and I own many of them. My bookshelf is full of books on the subject and beyond a doubt this video covers all of the topics one would hope. Great movie!
A MUST SEE July 18 2008
By Lee Adams - Published on
This film is so beautifully shot and its subject matter so lovingly handled, it will move you to tears. The sideshow is such an important part of our cultural heritage that, for this alone, everyone should see American Carny. Focusing on the world of the phenominally gifted Todd Robbins (and all of its inhabitants)was the single best choice Nick Basile could have made as a film maker. Mr. Robbins is the reigning master of all things carny. His humor, sophistication, and shear magnetism could make the most jaded of us easy marks for whatever he wishes to sell - however he wishes to sell it. The carnival has a rock star, and his name is Todd Robbins.

LOVED this dvd. It is one of the best i've seen in awhile. The main focus in on Todd Robbins & that is a great starting point because from what I've read and seen he is the past and present carny. Great interviews. My only complaint is there wasn't enough spent on the history of the carny world.
