A Thousand Clowns (1965)

 Movie of the week

This is a great movie about standing up for what you believe in and who you love.  It actually has nothing to do with clowns, but it has a great cast and a wonderful storyline.  It’s very heart touching and heart warming.

“A middle-aged iconoclast, doggedly avoiding the tedium of employment and conventional life, faces the prospect of losing custody of his young ward”
