Freaks is something special. It was the followup effort by Tod Browning, the man who directed Dracula, and instead of the guaranteed smash everyone had every right to expect from him, it was banned almost immediately upon release.
It's actually an eye-opening look at again, how humanity can adapt to anything and create families of disparate groups.
And of course, there's the ending with Cleopatra's ... diminished circumstances. And the scene where "they accept her they accept her one of us one of us gooble gobble gooble gobble."
It's only an hour and 5 minutes with not a minute wasted. Watch. You'll be glad you did.
