  • Bill Griffith brings his talents to the story of Schlitzie Surtees, perhaps the best known pinhead in all of sideshow history you might recognize him from the Tod Browning film Freaks Griffith draws on historical documents, interviews, and to piece together a biography of Schlitzie that is at turns humorous, heartfelt, and downright harrowing I didn t know that he was briefly and miserably confined to a county hospital before being returned to the care of Ward Hall and another sid Bill Griffith [...]
