Introduction

The Elephant Man (John Merrick) As an individual and viewer of the movie, The Elephant Man, I can elaborate that taking care of John Merrick by Dr. Treves was completely an ethical act.

Also during his stay in the hospital he built a beautiful model of a church that he was seeing from the window of his room.
