This 1951 film seems as relevant today as it ever did.
All I can say is that I absolutely love it when something like this happens; I got into a film expecting something and get something entirely the opposite.
In it, Billy Wilder explores the way an ordinary man can become a bizarre media hero and attract hundreds of spectators to a freak show.
Classic in all respects - it was a must have for my collection. Love it.Published 28 days ago by Roy K.

Made in 1951, it still speaks to what is happening in the news media today.
