Chaney plays a convincing police detective in an enjoyable drama
Once again, Lon Chaney cast his makeup case aside and played a no-nonsense NY police detective, out to nail a murderer.
He's all business and Chaney LOOKS like an old-time detective. From the way he holds his gun to his wardrobe, it all looks like the real thing. And he even displays some great comedy touches in this film.
Look for the newly completed (April 1928) L.A. City Hall is a scene where Chaney goes over the rooftops. It is a crackerjack of a picture and Chaney is in top form!
