Turner classic Movies showed the first motion picture version of State Fair last night. Produced in 1933 and starring Will Rogers and Janet Gaynor, the film held up and was a treat to watch. The fair--with its roller coaster, merry-go-round and slightly raunchy side show looked like fun and made me remember the Tampa State Fair. The portraits painted by the cast were excellent and I found myself rooting for Ma to win the ribbons for her pickles and mince pie, Pa to win the ribbon for his pig names Blue Boy and for Janet Gaynor to find lasting happiness with her new found love. So many early films don't engross the modern viewer and are more of a curiosity but State Fair later made into a musical film by Rodgers and Hammerstein is a winner. If the picture is shown again in your area, I highly recommend it.
