Has anyone ever laughed at you? Made fun of you? Because you were too tall/ too small/ too fat/ too skinny/ too whatsoever?
If you answered this with “No.” : congratulations! You’re Mary Poppins. (As you know: “Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.” ... In that case: I am not so sure whether I like you or not. ..)
If you answered the questions above with “Yes.” : don’t worry – you’re one of us. - “One of us. One of us..”
Maybe this is why I can relate that much to the film I am presenting today – and which I ask you to watch whether you were or weren’t laughed at - and especially if you get your kicks out of hurting other people’s feelings:
During the early 1930’s in a side show circus: Cleopatra (Olga Baclanova), the beautiful trapeze artists, called “Peacock of the air”, finds out that her small fellow artist Hans (Harry Earles) is about to inherit a great amount of money – so she takes advantage out of his soft spot for her and makes him marry her. Now she tries to intoxicate him slowly – but the other “freaks” notice that and they will take care of their friend..
Amazing film – and though I hate those “oh, you MUST see this or that”-stuff: I highly recommend this film to all of you!
