DescriptionChained for Life (Classic Pictures, 1951). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Daisy and Violet Hilton were, perhaps, the best known conjoined twins of the twentieth century. Born in England in 1908, they began performing in their native country as children. They eventually came to America, where they performed a tap dance routine with Bob Hope. After successfully suing for independence from their abusive managers in 1931, the twins set out on a successful vaudeville tour and, most famously, appeared in director Tod Browning's widely-banned circus picture, Freaks, in 1932. Their next screen appearance was in this 1951 exploitation classic, after which they continued a schedule of personal appearances until shortly before their deaths in 1969. Offered here is the highly desirable portrait card from their well-known film. In excellent condition, only some light foxing in the bottom border and staple holes in the corners keep this rare beauty from an even higher grade. Very Fine+. *****
