Quotes & Highlights

“Filled with laughter and warmth and sweetness and inspired daffiness.” —New York Daily News

Description

A coming-of-middle-age story revolving around eccentric bachelor Murray Burns, an unemployed children’s television writer who has found himself raising his sister’s son after she went out for a pack of cigarettes and never returned. When social workers from the Bureau of Child Welfare come to investigate whether his nephew is receiving a proper upbringing, finding an actual paying job becomes high priority so Murray can keep the precocious 12-year-old. A return to his former work involves writing for “Chuckles the Chipmunk,” an inane character if ever there was one! Full of quotable dialogue and quirky charm, A Thousand Clowns speaks to us of commitment and the power of love.
