    Description

    Freaks (Excelsior, R-1949). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    For horror fans who like their films to be on the more bizarre end of human depravity, this film has to rank as one of the most unusual and enticing. Set in the cruel world of traveling carnival shows, Harry and Daisy Earles, Johnny Eck, and Roscoe Ates star as performers who seek the ultimate revenge on Hercules and Cleopatra (Henry Victor and Olga Baclanova) after they discover their murder plot. Shortly after the film's release in 1932, it was pulled from distribution and not seen again for years. Exploitation film distributor Dwain Esper bought the rights, and traveled the country showing the film in the late 1940s. Signs of use include slight edge and fold wear, fold separations, light creases, and small stains. There are moderate tears, one of which extends from the top edge into the upper background and another in Henry Victor's image. The verso has linen tape and archival tape bracing tears and fold separations. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
