"Freaks", 1932
Original Vintage Lobby Card movie poster (11x14")

You know the story behind this historical film.  So, we'll just say this is the best card of the set, with more sideshow people than any other card in the lobby card set! .  The card has missing paper in upper left corner and a small section on right border.  That said, the image is intact and of course an incredibly striking image.   This is the 1949 re-release of this 1932 film, which was considered so abominable for the public to see it was banned in Great Britain. .Goes without saying this won't last long.  Terrific scene with sideshow people and Wallace Ford (see interesting bio for Wallace Ford below)

The estimate to restore the small missing sections of the card is $150-200

* We have been so fortunate to recently acquire the entire lobby card set of eight from this film.  See the others below under Also Recommended.

Freaks (Excelsior, R-1949). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Freaks was considered so controversial when MGM originally released the film in 1932 that the studio immediately pulled it from theatres. It wasn't until 1949 that an independent distributor, Dwain Esper, acquired the rights and put it back into release. The lobbies that feature the freaks are the most desirable and this scene depicts Schlitze, Jennie Lee and Elvira Snow, the"pin-heads" of the circus.

* Authenticity Guaranteed for Life
** Of course Cvtreasures.com stamp NOT on original lobby card.
