This is one of Chaney's best. He's phenomenal in projecting emotion from one second to the next portraying a clown who must suppress his love for his adopted daughter who is now a grown woman. The tragic story is very moving.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Not only is the story well-crafted and the music great but the actors emote with much more subtlety then most silent-era films.
Great acting from Cheney, but other than that, the story is predictable. It's that old story of a guy who just happens to find a young girl, raises her like a daughter and then falls in love with her when she is older. The ending was really good too. Overall, it's a pretty good movie, but it would have been better if the story weren't so predictable.
