What’s a sideshow?

On the new Criterion release of the movie Nightmare Alley there's a wonderful supplement on the history of the sideshow that will answer your question. That guy really knows what he's talking about.

Those are awesome links 13. Thank you. The Ward Hall video is just plain disturbing in its rawness. I love it!
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
