DVD, black and white, 62 minutes, Region 1. New, still sealed in shrink wrap, with light sun fading on the spine. “Tod Browning directs this landmark 1932 movie in which the true freaks are not the story’s sideshow performers, but “normal” who mock and abuse them. Browning, a former circus contortionist, cast real-life sideshow professionals. A living torso who nimbly lights on cigarette despite having no arms or legs, microcephalics (whom the film calls “pinheads”) – they and others play the big-top troupers who inflict a terrible revenge on the trapeze artist who treats them as subhumans. In 1994, Freaks was selected for the National Film Registry’s archive or cinematic treasures.”
