    I first 'discovered' late actor Conrad Veidt while reading a wonderful article in my Films of The Golden Years magazine last Fall (2013). I was fascinated with what he said about his performance in "The Man Who Laughs" e.g. to using his eyes as a means of communication. So, I purchased a copy of TMWL and I've been hooked on Conrad Veidt ever since. I couldn't take my eyes off of him as 'Gwynplaine', so much so that I nearly forgot to watch the film story-wise. The make-up that Jack Pearce created is just stunning. When Veidt said he used his eyes to 'communicate', he wasn't KIDDING. The anguish in them at the beginning of the film, and then the joy. He would have been a rival of Lon Chaney's, believe me! I've since watched TMWL's quite a few times and can only HOPE that sometime in the future TCM will spotlight Conrad Veidt for a month and show the talent this actor possessed, not only as Major Strasser from 'Casablanca', but his work prior to the Bogart-Bergman classic.

    Conrad Veidt is wildly known for his role as Gwynplain in The Man Who Laughs, especially by Batman and Hans Walter Conrad Weidt fans. Magnificently playing villainous characters and expressing his characters feelings through actions and facial reactions, makes his silent film a must watch. His grotesque smile made this film go into the horror section of most video stores, but in truth it’s more of a drama. Every Batman fan knows that the golden age Joker was based on Conrad’s Gwynplain. Surprisingly TCM doesn’t play this wonderful movie, it’s a shame really.
