Original 1940s Re-Release Three Sheet Poster (41x81). Linen-Backed. Very Fine Condition.

Original 1940s Re-Release Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the Tod Browning horror drama, FREAKS (1932) starring Wallace Ford, Leila Hyams, and Olga Baclanova. Browning had been a member of a traveling circus in his early years, and much of the film draws from his personal experiences. He took the bold step of casting mostly actual carnival performers. In truth, the film is a sad and sympathetic look at the way "abnormalities" were treated in the early part of the 20th century. The two "normal" people are the real monsters who lie, steal, and kill-- while the "freaks" are quite likeable and charming. The film really bombed at the box office and nearly ended Browning's career. This original re-release three sheet poster is linen-backed and in very fine condition.
