A circus' beautiful trapeze artist agrees to marry the leader of side-show performers, but his deformed friends discover she is only marrying him for his inheritance.
Myrna Loy, originally slated for the Olga Baclanova role, turned down the part because she felt the script was offensive.
Why is it, we women always have stuff to worry.
Venus: Oh, it's always been that way. I guess it always will be.
At 43:40 when Cleo tosses the wine at the freak, she is standing in front of him but wine she throws comes from far right side.
Although most prints end with the revelation of what happened to Cleopatra, Turner Classic Movies shows a version which follows that scene with a happy-ending epilogue in which Hans and Frieda are reunited. This epilogue itself exists in two different versions, one with dialogue, one without. All three alternate endings are included on the Warner DVD.
