We all remember Anne Baxter from her iconic roles in films like The Razor’s Edge, All About Eve, and I Confess.
But did you know that she also starred in a 1954 musical comedy-drama called Carnival Story?
This lesser-known film stars Baxter alongside Steve Cochran and Lyle Bettger. Baxter plays the role of ‘Lili’, a spirited young girl who runs away from home to join a carnival troupe.
Her plan is to use the money she earns as an acrobat to help her family out of poverty.
Along the way, she meets up with the troupe’s leader (Cochran) and his assistant (Bettger).
Together they must battle bureaucracy while trying to make ends meet amidst their colorful circus environment.
