Description by OLDIES.com:
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.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 557 ratings.
This is one of the true classics. The Hilton Sisters' acting ability is matched only by their wonderful singing. A must have for fans of TRUE entertainment.
Not those Hilton Sisters! The original Hiltons were simease twins who toured in Vaudville trying to stay alive.
This movie is not as dramatic as the cover makes it seem. It is in fact 75% of nothing except the vaudvillians working with the Hilton's at the time doing their acts.
Some long stertches of film are spent watching a juggler, an accordionist (does two tunes!) and then the Hilton's will do a song or two (the same song three times).
There is a really thin murder plot line which you kind of see coming up the block but there is no mystery .
Historicly it might be worth the watch. There are acts which will never be seen again. There is one dream sequence when Helen (Daisy) visualizes not being attached to Dorothy (Violet) any longer. The camera work is masterful in using another actress to portray Helen dancing alone in the garden, and cleverly avoiding Dorothy in the close-ups. It may seem over-simplified now but there was no computer to generate the images back then...
