The Freaks Ultimate Guide is the best way to rediscover a classic, evoking the haunting imagery of one of cinema’s most controversial movies!


Banned in the UK for over 30 years, 1932 pre-code movie Freaks almost ended director Tod Browning’s career and is technically still banned in some areas of the US today. Using real life sideshow performers including Johnny Eck the Man with Half a Body, Prince Randian the Living Torso, Frances O’Connor the Armless Beauty, Peter Robinson the Living Skeleton, Daisy and Violet Hilton the Siamese Twins, Olga Roderick the Bearded Lady and Koo-Koo the Bird Woman, the film caused outrage among MGM studio executives, the cinemagoing public and film critics of the day.

Based on the short story Spurs by Clarence ‘Tod’ Robbins, Freaks tells a tale of greed, betrayal and the unshakable code of conduct observed by those titular protagonists bound by human affliction. Superbly directed by Browning and featuring a stellar cast including Wallace Ford, Leila Hyams, Olga Baclanova and dwarf siblings Harry and Daisy Earles, Freaks was conveniently lost in the studio’s vaults for a number of years due to the horrible reactions it provoked.

  1. Dan Skopp – USA, State of Wisconsin (verified owner)

    I have been under the impression that director Todd Browning, made this film to identify and inform the people of the thirties about the plight of the misformed but highly intelligent “Freak’s” of Nature! Over thirty minutes of this film have been “lost”. The film was meant to inform not terrify!!
