Ace in the Hole: fantastic film. In my top 5 for the year
I always liked The Big Carnival better.
quote:When the film was released, it got bad reviews and lost money. The studio, without Billy Wilder's permission, changed the title to The Big Carnival to increase the box office take of the film. It didn't work.
When I first saw this on TV--at the dawn of civilization--it had the latter title.
