Nice montage of Coney Island boardwalk. Starts with image of soldier taking his friends' photo. All around them are people, and behind them we see "Ocean Baths." Cut to a close up of two young women and men (they look stylish) in a close circle talking_behind them we see "Hyman's Bar & Grill." Cut to an overview of a crowded section of the boardwalk. Crowd of smiling people standing around and looking up. Cut to MCU LA carnival or sideshow barker speaking into microphone and pointing while holding tickets. TU to pointer at freak show sign "Smallest Grown Ups On Earth". People buying freak show tickets. Cut to lurid circus freak show posters: "Madam Zenda: World's
Greatest Mind Reader", "Prof. Frank Graf: Human Art" (tattooing; poster only), "Marian: Headless Girl From London" (extremely lurid and practically indescribable), "Winsome Winnie: Fat Pretty And Jolly" (the circus fat lady), many others including "Zip & Pip: 2 Georgia Peaches". Cut to very rare footage of midget PINHEADS (Zip & Pip, apparently) on display in the freak show.
