The Unknown

(Tod Browning, 1927). This deliciously morbid Grand Guignol piece is set in a Spanish circus where armless Lon Chaney tosses knives with his feet at the young Joan Crawford and what follows is one of the oddest stories ever filmed by a major studio. The great Chaney's rendition of corporal distortion surpasses his considerable physical feats in other picture.
