Always effective Chaney delivers solid performance
16 February 2001 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

This is a melodrama taking place in Chinatown, with the escaped convict of 15 years imprisonment David Webster, played by Lon Chaney, seeking revenge upon the plutocratic criminal who framed him. Complicating this situation is his daughter's betrothal to the son of his underhanded enemy. Integration of complicated plot factors is handled well by first-time director Irving Cummings, who went on to direct many superb films. Chaney's performance as a faux cripple expands as the film progresses, his unique face expressive of his inner struggles as he wars against the frustration of dealing with evil elements who have the upper hand. The work benefits from fine supporting cast members, including Noah Beery as Li Fang, the Chinese "boss" whose loyalty to Webster is steadfast, and Ralph Lewis as Fletcher Burton, Webster's principal foe. Several scenes revolve around children, and although there is no direct connection between them and the storyline, these help in marshaling sympathy for the leading characters. The scenario is actually somewhat complex, but the measured pace set by the veteran actor Cummings is appropriate to permit development. For a 79 year old film, and not remastered, the print is quite good, even when contemporary standards are applied, with seldom a "jump". A pipe organ accompaniment lacks nothing, and is perfectly synchronous with each scene of this largely overlooked silent work.
