Drama, Silent
Victor Sjostrom's 1924 silent film features a rare restrained performance by Lon Chaney, as a disgraced scientist who works as a circus clown while plotting his revenge. Sjostrom is probably best known to most filmgoers for his performance as the old man in Bergman's Wild Strawberries, but as a director, both in Sweden and the U.S., he pioneered a naturalistic style that is still unsurpassed in its grace and lyric subtlety.
