Description: The Hungarian Korhinta was released outside Europe as Little Fairground Swing and Merry Go Round. The film's mild propaganda content, concerning the advantages of collective farming, does not impede its entertainment value. The story concerns a young couple (Bela Barsi, Mari Toroczik) who meet cute at a fairground. As they dance the night away, the boy expresses his love for the girl, resulting in a startling reaction. The film is unabashedly sentimental, but the performances of the two leads transcend the storyline's gooier passages. Korhinta was Hungary's primary entry in the Cannes Film Festival of 1956 -- yet another feather in the cap of director Zoltan Fabri, who went on to helm such classics as The Boys from Paul Street and The Fifth Seal.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
