Bound by Flesh
Status: IN STOCK
BOUND BY FLESH tells the amazing story of Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins who rose to superstardom at the beginning of the 20th century as sideshow attractions, performing alongside the likes of Bob Hope and Charlie Chaplin. While most sideshow performers simply served as objects of curiosity for their passing audiences, the Hilton Sisters stood apart by putting on a full-fledged show, complete with singing, dancing, and music. Ruthlessly exploited by their managers, the sisters ultimately sued for their freedom—which they won at a terrible cost. A gripping, roller-coaster tale of showbiz tragedy, BOUND BY FLESH is puts a touchingly human face on two outsiders who went from the lowest rungs of society to the big time and back again.
