He ends up dying from a fall .Lastly when you think Baxter's love life is a tragedy.

She has a great courage that enables her to move swiftly from the kitchen to the top of the carnival by becoming a star in a diving act.
Jacques COULARDEAU
It's from a 16mm print so the image is on the fuzzy side and the color is a little washed out.

A seedy American carnival tries to change its luck in Germany.Steve Cochran at at his sexy best as the bad guy. Cochran and Baxter have some hot scenes that are sometimes cut when this shows on TV. My dvd is intact with apparently, no cuts at all in the steamy shower scene. I gave the film a 4 but Steve and Anne rate a 5 for their romantic scenes.

The roan edition of Carnival Story could have been better. It's an interesting film and plays well. The only issue with Roan on this one are the number of bad splices toward the end of the film. I have seen another print of this film on a 50-movie pack without the splices. After watching a number of different Roan DVD's, on occasion they have splice problems with some of their prints. I don't understand why they just don't use 2 prints of a film to make a good one. This is the reason I have to knock off stars. Update: VCI has an edition of "Carnival Story" which I would now recommend over other editions. Other than a couple of minor imperfections, the quality is better and there are NO splices.

Liked well enough to order a second copy as my first one was a different company and color inferior. All of cast give fine preformance on a story of carnival life. Anne Baxter is down and out and Steve Cochran ,the bad guy carnival employee offers Baxter job with carnival. Anne runs into one problem after another ,but overcomes them all by the end of the film. The story never drags and holds your interest and gives you a glimpse of the seedier side of carnival life.

Format: DVD
Old movie but worth watching .The sound quality and picture quality is not that good since it was made in 1954,but it is very enjoyable to watch.I first purchased this movie at a discount store.There was 2 movies on the DVD,
Carnival Story and another film.When I was in the middle of watching
Carnival Story the sound suddenly became muted in the last half of the film.I liked the movie so much that I ordered one from amazon just to see how the movie ends..The movie stars Anne Baxter who played " Nefretiri " in the remarkable Ten Commandments.It is about a traveling carnival show touring in Germany.Baxter first falls in love with one guy who works at the carnival,but he turns out to have a deceptive character ,he ends up dying from a 100 foot fall from a ferris wheel..Then she falls for another man,the high diver who stars in the carnival.He performs daily diving off a 200 foot ladder into a fire-lit pool below.He ends up dying from a fall .Lastly when you think Baxter's love life is a tragedy.She links up with a 3rd man who was a close friend of the high diver.If you like to watch old movies ,this is a good choice.

The story of a young German woman who gets entangled in an American Carnival touring Germany after WW2. Men are attracted to her, to help her, to love her, to use her. She has a great courage that enables her to move swiftly from the kitchen to the top of the carnival by becoming a star in a diving act. She is good, very good, and resolute to succeed. But she cannot manage her relations with men properly and leads them to death in the strangest conditions. She can only run away, with another man of course, away from the successive dramas. Love cannot be the tool of success nor of ambition.
Dr Jacques COULARDEAU

This is the worst reproduction of a movie I have ever obtained from Amazon.com.
I think a copy like this one should be removed from the order list before someone else gets stuck with it.
The picture and sound are awful and it doesn't even fit the screen properly.
Even some dollar DVD's I purchased from Walmart look better than this one.

Dissapointed

I just received the DVD of Carnival Story that I ordered from Amazon and was surprised to see it is a DVD-R. Nowhere on the listing does it mention this. I think they should always list this information in the product description. On the plus side, the Roan transfer is far better than the Alpha one. Not remotely archival quality but good color nevertheless.

I bought this VCI-version of "Carnival Story" and it is a good movie but the colors of the DVD are indeed washed-out, but what's more, at least on my copy, the sound is really terrible!!!
