This was fantastic! Campy but seriously twisted. This is the first Chaney film I've seen and he is really great. He has such an expressive face, perfect for silent cinema. The rest of the cast really hold their own as well, particularly Crawford and John George as Cojo.
I didn't even recognize Joan Crawford! It seems that make up and hairdo from the 20's can make a person look completely different.
