Little Cigars was the second consecutive movie featuring little people I watched
Having just watched the little people musical western The Terror of Tiny Town, I decided to go next to fancast.com to watch Little Cigars which stars two of TTOTT's players: Billy Curtis and Jerry Maren. Other members of their gang include Frank Delfino, Felix Silla, and Emory Sousa. There's also a statuesque blond played by Angel Tomkins who reluctantly joins their carnival act when she runs from her former gangster paramour's henchmen. At this point, the movie becomes a series of heists that provide some suspenseful moments. Most of the time, however, there's some highly humorous moments involving size and sex and fighting. In fact, I loved the scene when the Curtis character attempts to get "girlfriend" Tomkins out of the bar by beating up on the guy sitting next to her especially after previously seeing him doing the same to "Little Billy" Rhodes in The Terror of Tiny Town! No great shakes but Little Cigars comes highly recommended for anyone with a taste for the unusual. P.S. Angelo Rossito was another little person who appears here as part of a member of those his size put in a police lineup. His best known movie was Freaks. Also in continuing to point out actors with connections to my birth town of Chicago, Simmy Bow was also born there and Walter Beakel was a founding member of The Second City there.
