The Greatist Showman

Wonderful Greatist Showman

I can’t even remember when I saw the film, starring Australian actor, Hugh Jackman, but I know the movie  “The Greatest Showman” made a big impact on me.  I loved every moment of it all, and I react when I hear the music.  I sometimes sing along with the music – I loved the music, the dancing and the story.

Many of us knew some of the story of the Barnum and Bailey circus which P T Barnum created.  We may not have known a lot about the circus but we knew the name.  It was created in the 1800’s and the movie is “loosely” based on his life.

P T Barnam was certainly a very talented and creative fellow, and you can read some of his history here.

Costumes and Personalities

I am aware that there were some critics who did not like the movie, and I don’t care for their comments.  The music is wonderful, and the dancing and singing I enjoyed.  Every time I hear the songs I feel happier.  I liked it that the characters portrayed in the film were not “ordinary” people.  It was how circuses were in the early days.


Movie at the Library

Suddenly I have an urge to see the whole movie again.  It is available at the library, so when I have completed today’s tasks I will head to the library to get it.  I will be able to watch it a few times before it is due to be returned.

My feet are already tapping in anticipation.
