The 1923 movie “Freaky” has topped the British box office charts, according to official figures released Thursday.
It opened in the U.K. on July 14 and was the No. 1 film in the country, pulling in $2.6 million in its first week of release.

The movie was directed by George Cukor and starred William Holden, Elizabeth Taylor, Frances McDormand and Helen Hayes.
“Freakish Movie” won’t be out until the fall, but it will be seen by fans around the world.
“We have a tremendous film here, which is not only a very popular film but a very important film in our history, and I think that’s what it’s going to bring to people,” Cukar told The Associated Press.
Cuker was the grandson of British actor and screenwriter, actor and producer, Sir Arthur Cukier.
He also directed “The War of the Worlds,” “The Great Dictator,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “I, Robot” and “The Untouchables.”
“Freaks” is an adaptation of a short story written by Cukario and published in 1926.
It tells the story of a family on a cruise ship, where a girl named Rose is a ghost who appears to everyone as an adult, but is actually a baby girl.
The story tells the tale of a shipwreck that leaves the girl and her family on the island of Oahu with only the ship’s captain, Rose, to care for them.
The film was based on a book by John Steinbeck.
Cuddles, a fictionalized version of the movie was made into a children’s television show in 1987.
It starred Barbara Stanwyck, Helen Hayes, Mary Pickford and Richard Burton.
The book, “The Freaks,” was a New York Times bestseller in 1979.

The Cuckoos were inspired by the film “The Cuckoopers,” and were based on the real-life group of cuckoos.
The company that owns the cuckoo-themed chain of restaurants, Cucko’s Restaurants, said Thursday that “Freaking” is the first time that a film has topped box office in both the U-K.
and U.S. “I am so excited that it’s becoming the highest grossing British film of all time,” Cuckos chief executive officer, Andy Cowley, told The Daily Telegraph.
“And it’s the first ever film to top the box office here in the UK.
It will be a real honour for us to have it on our screens.”
Cuckoes chief operating officer, Mike O’Sullivan, said the company had not yet heard about the film and that the film had not been approved by the British Film Institute.
“The film is based on an original short story by John Cukaro and has been independently licensed by the BFI,” O’ Sullivan said.
“It is currently in the process of being released in the United Kingdom.”
