What a great trailer! Must have been a Drive-In Favorite that summer.

The movie of course featuring that famous fight scene... www.youtube.com/watch?v=75ACQveD9ac

That was great!

When I first saw this movie (on TV), probably about age 11 or 12, I was absolutely horrified at the ending and couldn't watch it again for years. I really believed (and still wonder quite a bit) that a beautiful carousel was essentially destroyed to make a film. People since have assured me that it was just a model (used for the scene where it collapses), but considering that this was the 1950s and the lack of sophistication in special effects at that time, nowhere did it ever look like a model to me. Alfred Hitchcock was on my "hate" list all through my teenage years because of this film, LOL!

Hitchcock was known for his creation of perceived allusions and camera shots. The frame may have been toast but the horses, probably not. I reviewed it several times. I think the horses were fiberglass. That said, it was an intense scene and a lot of it was sped up to make it even more so.

Some of the horses were from Griffith Park
