Bluff City Show was in a movie about Box Car Willie. I can't remember the name of the movie but I think it was in the early 90's. Also, a documentary about carnival life was filmed on Bill Hames Show back around '89 or '90. It was narrated by Red Segal. Everyone else in it was with the show. They gave Herschell Freeman a big part. I think it was on ESPN?? The show was called Great American Adventures or something like that.

You mean the wheel in Mighty Joe Young? It was sent back to Mulligan and they rebuilt it. Good as new.

I remember as a kid we were with a show up around K.C. the name of the show was Novelty Exposition owned by Harold Anderson out of Topeka Ks. His show was in the movie Paper Moon starring Tatum and Ryan O'Neal! I think the daughter received an oscar for her role.

What about the Funhouse. I have a friend named Danny who used to work on a show in Ohio that was set-up for operation when a film crew with a bunch of weird-ass people(who smoked lots of herb)showed up for about 4 days of filming.He told me the movie was shot in a studio but they used their darkride only for the outside shots.(it was never that elaborate)as they came in to redecorate the outside to their liking but that show was out around the cicinatti area.the only appearance he made was that you could see him walking around in the background aimlessly. Yep, that sounds like Danny!
