TTP #170 – The Pageant of the Trans-Mundane
This week Patsy and Ashes are talking about Tod Browning’s 1932 masterpiece Freaks, but before they do that they must pay their respects to horror icon and titan of the screen Sid Haig. They talk about their experiences with him at Rock and Shock before delving into the classic film that was banned for decades all over the world! They discuss the bold choice to use folks with actual medical abnormalities instead of relying on “movie magic” and how the film tried to cast these folks in a positive light compared to the “normal” folks. All this, plus battle results, a NEW battle, science, and wine on this week’s episode!
