Synopsis:
Lucky Gagin arrives is San Pablo at fiesta time. He is looking for Frank Hugo, a
big-time crook who killed his best friend over a blackmail scheme. Lucky
intends to collect the money his friend didn't, but Hugo has other plans. Along
the way Lucky is assisted by Pancho, a good-natured, local carny whose
carousel provides the significance of the film's title; and Pila, the mysterious,
childlike waif who sees him through his darkest hour. Also on hand are a
femme fatale with questions as to where her loyalties lie and an F.B.I. man who
may or may not be on the take. Montgomery's performance as the cynical
anti-hero is first rate. The genre is film noir but the film takes on an unexpected
and unique atomosphere due to Montgomery's style of directing, the unusual
fiesta setting and a remarkably effective soundtrack. A must see.
