Description

    Freaks (Excelsior, R-1949). CGC Graded Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    Gaining an infamous reputation the instant it released, Tod Browning's 1932 pre-Code film, Freaks, used real sideshow performers in the cast, an extremely controversial choice that led to the film being banned in the UK. Though the film received a normal theatrical release, it was limited, and was pulled from distribution in no short order due to the disabilities of its cast horrifying the audience. The film remained shelved for some 17 years before being picked up by Excelsior and Dwain Esper for distribution. This great set is in immaculate condition. All of the cards are CGC graded 9.8. Near Mint/Mint.
