    Description

    Freaks (Excelsior, R-1949). 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. The poster shows light edge wear, slight creases, a couple of minor paper lifts, and a small tear in the right border. There are a few soft surface scuffs in the interior, some small stains in the upper border, and slight rippling at the top edge. Rolled, Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
