Blurb:

A CENTURY AGO, HE FASCINATED, HORRIFIED AND MOVED A GENERATION. NOW, HIS STORY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. THE ELEPHANT MAN

His name was John Merrick. A hideous freak, born with terrible deformities, he suffered as a prisoner in a Victorian circus sideshow. Even when the surgeon, Frederick Treves, rescued him from his torment, mankind continued to treat The Elephant Man like a monster.
Until Treves’ love and compassion breathed new life into Merrick’s soul — and those around could see the poetry in his dreams of freedom.

A Brooksfilms Production for EMI Films ….. Based on the life of John Merrick, the Elephant Man, and not upon the Broadway play or any other fictional account.
