Chained for Life woof! 1951

Daisy and Violet Hilton, real life Siamese twins, star in this old-fashioned “freak” show. When a gigolo deserts one twin on their wedding night, the other twin shoots him dead. The twins go on trial and the judge asks the viewer to hand down the verdict. Exploitative and embarrassing to watch. 81m/B VHS, DVD . Daisy Hilton, Violet Hilton, Allen Jenkins, Sheldon Leonard; D: Harry Fraser; W: Nat Tanchuck.
