Lon Chaney hits the skids, but...........
16 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this "Z" film with my dad at the run-down Rio Theater in downtown Miami in around 1970 or so. It was the second half of a double feature. This is truly a very sad state of affairs-the complete downfall of a really outstanding actor, Lon Chaney, Jr. He looks about as weather-beaten as possible. He looks like he has been on a 6 month drinking spree. The poor guy looks horrible. It's like seeing a washed-up Jane Russell in the Born Losers, or Robert Taylor in The Savage Pampas. "How The Mighty have Fallen!"

However! There is a bright spot. Chaney gives a heart-wrenching, gritty, realistic, and professional performance. As a matter of fact, if you are a Lon Chaney, Jr. fan, this film is a must-see. Because the bottom line is, even though this is a "Z" film, made on a shoe-string budget, with a cast of easily forgotten, Chaney tries his best, and delivers his typically outstanding performance.
