      I'm still working with the VHS version that came out many years ago...just watched it for the second time, the first being those many years ago. It's certainly different, that much I can say...guess you really have to like those 135 foot yachts.

      We've watched it on VHS courtesy of the local video store, but felt we would be better served waiting for it to come out on DVD. Unless we invest in a region-free player, that could be awhile. At the time, the VHS copies through ebay and elsewhere were pretty pricey, which is why we don't own it in that format.

      I do have a DVD of Circus World that was released by Reel Corporation and the DVD is PAL format and media is locked to region(s): 1 2 3 4 5 6. Most computer DVD players will pay it because it looks at the region only not the format. But a normal stand alone DVD player will not recognize the format. If your video card connects to your TV you can play the video through your computer and my computer has 5.1 Surround to listen to the audio. So if you have a decent computer you can grab a copy of Circus World on DVD.

      It's been so long I don't remember. I either found it on eBay or Amazon. I will tell you there are a lot of them on eBay right now that say they are NTSC DVD's but they have to be pirated or bootleg. Or copied from VHS which is the same as pirated. You might even check The John Wayne Film Society. We have some of those members on here. I am one and they have several movies available on DVD that we don't have here. You could email them also at: jwfs@filmcutts.com

      WARNING: A word to the wise... the ones that are on eBay that say they are region free and are NTSC format I have found out they are from Hong Kong. In other words they are bootleg/pirated copies of the movie. They are usually a really crappy video. Here's the response after I questioned them on how they had an NTSC format.

      For some Asian countries NTSC is the regular format, Taiwan for example. Copyright laws are also different in some places. - Not that I've ever ordered from Hong Kong - I believe there's a good chance to get a low quality copy. Anyway, I solved the regions problem by buying a cheap multiregion player - £20 from Amazon. Has worked perfectly for a half year now, plays anything.

      To the topic: Circus World is not bad, if not especially memorable. It has a very strange ending though
      I don't believe in surrenders.

      WOW, I can't believe that I am again, going against tha majority and saying that I actually liked this movie. I first saw it about 25 years ago when we first got cable TV and had the then excellent channel: WTBS - Atlanta. They played it and I remember watching it with my parents and we all seemed to enjoy it. However, being that I have not seen this movie again in the last 20 or so years, my opinion might change. :yeaahh:

      i remember seeing this film when it first came out in cinerama it looses a lot on a small screen. the big screen is the only way to enjoy this film.

      We don't talk a lot about Circus World, so I was wondering who on this message board have seen this movie. It has never been released in the U.S. on DVD. It is available or has been available on VHS. I happen to have a VHS copy of this movie myself, so my question is simple. Have you ever seen this movie?

      You may comment on your experiences seeing the movie. I'm not interested in reviews from the video sources or Hollywood like imbd, etc. I am interested in your own personal opinion.

      I will see my movie. It has been years since I've seen it myself, but I will watch it again and comment when I do.

      Cheers :cool: Hondo
