Adapted from the play by Leonid Andreyev and the debut American feature for acclaimed Swedish director Victor Sjöstrom, Lon Chaney stars as brilliant inventor Paul Beaumont who becomes tormented by the theft of his research by a rival scientist. He moves forward with his life hiding behind the mask of a clown and engages in a comedic show of being slapped and battered around by other clowns on stage when he attempts to speak, much to the delight of circus audiences. The clown now known as “HE” looks to find redemption as he falls in love with another performer (Norma Shearer) and lies in wait for the opportunity to redeem his personal and professional humiliation. (USA, 1924, 95 min, NR | Dir: Victor Sjöstrom)
