  • Superb!

    So many layers to this film! It's absolutely brilliant! The direction by Herbert Brenon was a joy to watch. Lon Chaney, Sr. breaks your heart. Loretta Young is so young and so innocent. Her character loves Tito (Chaney) but she wants and needs love from someone who will tell her he loves her and Tito doesn't do that. He becomes the victim of his own silence. Chaney's clown characterization is nothing short of superb. It is hard to believe he wasn't a clown in real life. There is one scene where the two clowns try to cheer Simonetta up and every detail of their "clowning" is masterful! I adore silent films; however, if you do not, please give this one a try. It will change your mind forever about silents. In them, you have a chance to see true acting on display!

  • One of Chaney's best

    A fan of Chaney's since I first saw The Unholy Three many years ago, this one was the last major work of his that I've seen. It contains some of his best work. But what sets this one apart is the layering of the drama, assisted ably by the acting abilities of everyone involved. It's a brilliant and moving work, which retains its sharpness even today, almost a century later.

  • Mesmerizing Film

    Up until now I was not a fan of silent movies, but I caught the last half of this movie and could not stop watching it. I was mesmerized by the actors. I am looking forward to enjoying the entire film.

  • Great Silent Movie

    Remarkable for Chaney's acting mastery, and 15 year-old Young in a lead role.
