  1. Black Irish's rating of the film Man on the Flying Trapeze

    "We have what we have not / what we have not we have / up is down down is out / everyone knew me and I was happy / and we were all happy / is everyone happy / And I bought a big, red apple / Yes, unhappy is joy"

  2. SpacePirate's rating of the film Man on the Flying Trapeze

    One of Fields funniest. The scene where he gets several tickets by different policemen is just so beautifully paced and gets the most out of the gag. The opening scene is one of my favs of all his work also, as his henpecked-ness seems at an all time high. Good supporting cast help make this one a contender for his best work. Essential 30s comedy

  3. Tom JF's rating of the film Man on the Flying Trapeze

    Quiet! There are burgulars singing in the cellar!

  4. T.J. Royal's rating of the film Man on the Flying Trapeze

    Narrative's (intentionally, I think) unfocused, but I love its treatment of the yammering unappreciative wife and the nagging, no-good in-laws. Also like the fact that Fields' character gets the *benefit* of the doubt from some people, like his employer and his daughter. A drunkard's grave....
