Description by OLDIES.com:
Siamese twins Vivian and Dorothy Hamilton (played by real-life conjoined twins Violet and Daisy Hilton of Tod Browning's Freaks
) expose the dark secrets and intimate moments of their lives in this unflinching expose. Employable only as circus performers, the sisters live and love in a world not made for them. One is a desperate romantic, the other a cold-blooded killer. When Dorothy commits an unthinkable crime of passion, the courts must decide if they can execute both sisters for the sins of one.
Low-budget auteur Harry L. Fraser (White Gorilla, I Accuse My Parents) hit exploitation pay-dirt when he convinced the Hilton twins to return to film after their debut in Freaks. Advertised as "The only female Siamese Twins ever!," the sisters allowed Fraser to exploit every aspect of their deformity.
Starring the Hilton sisters, who are joined at the hip, this story is based on a Mark Twain story called "Those Amazing Twins" in which one of the twins is convicted of a crime and both must face conviction though one is innocent. This film is so appalling it has become a novelty of sorts.
One of a pair of Siamese twins is convicted of murder and the other twin, although innocent, must spend her life imprisoned with her sister.
