Fair Organ Plays Backwards in Ray Bradbury Story
By Sharon Marie

The story "Something Wicked This Way Comes" was made into a movie,
by Disney.  The carousel used in the film was the Parker Jubilee,
if I'm not mistaken.  I don't recall seeing an organ, but you could
hear it, as the carousel spun, playing both forward and backward.
I've never read the Ray Bradbury book but I enjoyed the movie.

 [ Ray Bradbury also wrote the screenplay for the Disney film.  See
 [ The Parker carousel was purchased and restored by Disney for the
 [ movie and later relocated to the pier at Santa Monica, California.
