"Willie's approach to life!"

(from EMI literature)

"This down-on-his-luck hobo was patterned after a comic strip created for the Detroit Free Press which featured and endlessly inept hobo named "Wearie Willie." During the great depression, Emmett Kelly, Sr. and his wife's circus trapeze act could not get booked, however a clown act could...and Wearie Willie was born!

In the early 1960's Emmett Kelly, Jr. assumed the role of Wearie Willie. Since that time, for five months out of every year, he becomes the sad face hobo with red swollen nose, hat taped and tie clipped with a clothespin as he tours America capturing the hearts of millions. It is easy to understand why people everywhere enjoy his whimsical, yet poignant portrayal of Wearie
