Lon Chaney, "the man of a thousand faces", plays a man who is shamed at every turn in life. When his mortal enemy reappears, he sets his sights on revenge for the sake of the woman he loves. It's an emotionally charged performance with an electrifying conclusion. Perhaps this rarely screened film is the role for which Chaney should be remembered.
