Tod Browning's somewhat overvalued shocker, set amid the segregated population of a carnival sideshow. Stiff, heavy-handed, preachy, and often, with its primitive 1930 soundtrack, inaudible; but also curious, compassionate, and unsettling. Certainly not one of Irving Thalberg's run-of-the-mill projects for MGM. (1932) — Duncan Shepherd
