More Freaks

Today’s Zippy goes back to the world of Tod Browning’s Freaks:

(#1)

From “Pip and Flip Snow: the pinheads of Freaks” by J. Tithonus Pednaud on The Human Marvels site:

Best known for their heartwarming roles in the 1932 film Freaks, where they starred in scenes alongside fellow famous pinhead Schlitzie, the Snow sisters were well-known staples of the World Circus Sideshow at Coney.

Usually promoted professionally as Pip and Flip, Jenny Lee Snow and Elvira Snow were billed as Pip and Zip in Freaks.
