e already met the Hilton Siamese in Tod Browning's "Freaks" (1932) but their first (and only) film as stars was "Chained for Life" directed by Harry Fraser in 1951.
The story talks about a pair of siamese twins who tours the country as part of a vodeville company. One of the girls (Violet) falls in love with an acrobat who is just looking for publicity and the bank account of Violet. Daysy (the other twin, siamese, whatever!) disagree with the relationship but poor Violet doesn't paid attention. Finally they get married and that same night the guy cheated on Violet hunging out with her stage partner (his longtime girlfriend). Next day, during the performance at the theatre Daysy killed his brother in law (?) in defense of her sister honor. Both girl go to trial (one as the innocent widow and the other as the murderer) and the jury don't know what to do.
The movie is fine as a novelty but is a camp as a scenario. If you think that the movie is weird, you are wrong. Even more intersting is Freaks in a escene where one of the Siamese has a boyfirend and he kissed her while the other siamese close her ayer because of the horny feelings.
If you want to watch "Chained for Live", the movie is available on "Rhino Video" and remember... for a bad movie a cheesy review!!!
