Inventive crime drama about jewel thieves, with romance, emotion, glamour and suspense.
A pretty good crime drama, I think Browning is better at horror, but this movie was enjoyable. The story is good, and the actors too, it's not great, but I liked it anyway.
Minor Chaney effort is still somewhat interesting.
Tod Browning's atmospheric silent crime melodrama is an early collaboration with screen icon Lon Chaney. As memorable as Chaney's dual role is, it's really only a supporting performance, but Priscilla Dean and Wheeler Oakman make compelling leads. The story is uneven, but it has some effective suspense scenes and an exciting climax - dated notions of cultural sensitivity and moral judgement aside. A solid early effort, but it pales in comparison to the dark gothic masterpieces Browning and Chaney would make a few years later.
