The film, which managed to offend nearly everyone before being effectively banned until the 1970s, according to Grayson, helped bring about the enforcement of the Motion Picture Production Code.
“Freaks” stars Olga Baclanova, Harry Earles and Wallace Ford. When a beautiful trapeze artist (Baclanova) learns that the midget (Earles) in the circus freak show has inherited money, she hatches a plan to marry him, but, in doing so, she risks violating the code of the freaks.
