32 Days of Halloween, Movie Night No. 4: Freaks

Part of a poster for the movie Freaks from 1932. There are numerous snippets of scenes but primarily there is Olga Baclanova as Cleopatra and Henry Victor as Hercules, flanked by Harry Earles as Hans and Daisy Earles as Frieda

A movie that messed with the heads of many back when it was released in 1932, our pick for tonight’s film is Tod Browning‘s Freaks. You read this site, which means you are pop culturally aware, so you knew even before you watched this for the first time that Browning used real people for the titular characters and not any sort of effects or costumes.

An interesting list of cultural bits influenced by this film is on its Wikipedia entry.
