Hoping “The Greatest Showman” doesn’t win a damn thing at the movie award show tonight but it will because of the talents of Hugh Jackman. One of the traumas of my childhood was seeing a freak show at the circus featuring conjoined twins in a cage. The movie glorifies P.T. Barnum as a champion of the marginalized & disabled when he was a vicious, ruthless exploiter. The circus freak show went out of style in the 1960s to be replaced by talk shows that held people up for ridicule. Oprah began her career with one of those but soon morphed into a self-help guru which, believe me, was an advance over the freak show which was an ignominious part of entertainment history.
