Meet Me At the Fair (1953)

[Dan Dailey, Diana Lynn, Chet Allen, Scatman Crothers, Hugh O'Brian]

In 1904, Doc Tilbee, medicine show huckster and champion tall tale teller, gives a ride to a young boy escaped from an orphanage, where bad conditions (the result of political graft) are being investigated by new appointee Zerelda Wing, who doesn't know that her fiancee is one of the politicians responsible. Tad wants to stay with his new friend Doc, who is attracted to Zerelda, to the discomfiture of his old flame Clara, all amid nostalgic musical numbers.

The juggling act that appeared was done by Johnson and Diehl.
