Englisch Tacit eloquence relying mainly on the charms of Crawford and Chaney’s unarguable charisma and acting talent. But what gave this movie immorality came along seventy years after the movie was made. It was then that the Alloy Orchestra decided to record the best ever accompanying music for this and a whole range of silent movies, adding the necessary punch and a wave of emotions and energy to this truncated version of the movie. And in doing so, they created a whole new movie. Better; perfect. ()

Englisch Tod Browning is one of the most misunderstood filmmakers of the silent and early sound era. His films are still beautiful and remain so after years. Alonzo, portrayed by the great Lon Chaney, is a wonderful tragic character with whom one can empathize, as well as dislike. However, in contrast to other characters, he is still the hero. Tod Browning was not afraid of horror elements, details, or romance. Everything fits perfectly in his films. ()
