The Big Show is a 1961 DeLuxe Color and CinemaScope Drama directed by James B. Clark, starring Esther Williams and Cliff Robertson. This is the third variation of Jerome Weidman's novel I'll Never Go There Any More. The other two are Broken Lance (1954) a western version starring Spencer Tracy, and House of Strangers (1949) set in the big city starring Edward G. Robinson.[1][2]

This was Esther Williams' second to the last movie, the last being Magic Fountain (1963) with Fernando Lamas whom she later married in 1969.[3]
