In my opinion Freaks is still an effective movie to this day, and one of director Tod Browning's best.
I'd have to agree with you, Lizzie. It's not about his deformity - no. The frightening moment comes from the eerie scenery, those sounds.. ughh, now I remembered the scene again, and it gave me shivers..
I saw it once and that's enough. I do NOT want to see it again. (As with Stray Cat, I don't even want to think about it.)
Drying out the mice.
Doggone it, Harry! I told you NOT to put out the Christmas stockings right after Halloween!
This photo's been making the rounds of the snarky-blogger/smirking-irony/OMG-wasn't-the-past-stupid crowd for a couple of years now, until a relative sent it my way. The caption attached to it is "ALL FEMALE SEX EDUCATION CLASS 1929."
Obviously the so-so-smart twentysomethings who're snickering superiously about this one have never heard of Clara Bow.
I am old! I spotted her before I even read your reply! You can tell she is the star, because a couple of the extras are staring at her, even though she is not speaking!
Student on the far right, second row from the bottom: "I remember that! And I was pretty darn good at it, if I do say so myself."
The still is from "The Wild Party," pretty much the definitive Clara Bow picture. Several of the gals shown later appear in the chorus lines of Paramount's early talkie musicals, notably the brunette you mention in the second row. She's one of the dancers in "I Want To Be Bad," a rather flammable production number in 1930's "Follow Thru."
Lizzie maybe you can help me identify a movie. This has been a puzzle to me for 50 years. Some time in the early sixties I saw an old movie on TV. Not the whole thing, not the beginning or the end, just part of it in the middle. Have never seen it but that once and no one has ever heard of it.
It was a black and white, Hollywood romantic comedy from the late forties up to possibly 1950 or 51.
The plot involved a young athlete and "health nut" who was trying to woo a young widow with 2 adorable little boys, about 5 and 7 years old.
The boys were all for him but she couldn't see him at all. After several rebuffs he finally talked her into a date.
He takes her to his favorite health food bar where he offers her a "potassium cocktail", at which she looks dubious, until he assures her "it's non alcoholic" at which she looks even more dubious.
The only other detail I remember is that her husband was in the Navy and was killed during WW2.
Does any of this ring a bell?
Oh that Clara Bow.
Only just read this post so back to the original list.
Number 23, The Pink Panzer
I enjoyed it too.
One of the things that springs to mind is that though many think these type of people were being exploited, at least they had a community and got paid, maybe not fairly but possibly that was what should have been addressed, rather than just shout outrage and put them out of a job and a chance to earn some money and live with likewise people. I dont know any 'freaks' but I am aware that real dwarves have to compete with other[average hight] actors now for a chance to play in the Snow White fairy stories in Pantomime due to those dreaded words 'Political correctness'
WOW! This superglue is an AMAZING breakthrough!
Star Wars (Soviet Union style!)
"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed."

You 'are' making meatloaf for dinner tonight...and apple pie...RIGHT..??
