Now regarded as a landmark film but virtually disowned by MGM when it was first produced, Tod Browning's film, set in a travelling circus, works as an old-fashioned morality play against avarice. Browning used a collection of handicapped actors and performers for the circus community, which initially welcomes the beautiful trapeze artist Cleopatra into their group when she marries midget circus owner, Hans. However, as it becomes clear that Cleopatra is only after Hans' money, and is conducting an affair with the strongman, the close-knit clan of 'freaks' plan a revenge.
