A "Must" for Chaney Film Fans DVD Library
- James Dane
I've seen the film only once but as others have said, it is a worthy effort for Lon Chaney AND it should be offered on a DVD. I would like to get a DVD for my son-in-law who collects all the Chaney Silent Films and he's never seen this one (yet).
Not worth preserving, except for Chaney
I've sat through two showings of "The Monster" on TCM, and I think I can say that it proves that not EVERYTHING from the silent era is a lost or almost-lost treasure. Even with allowing for the dramatic and cinematic conventions of 1925, this is a trite and tiresome film lacking in thrills or comedy. The only reason I can see for preserving it is Lon Chaney, who was such an artist that it's a sin to lose any of his work. *His* performance is excellent, as usual, and his all-too-brief time onscreen are the only parts of "The Monster" that are even watchable.
