The Penalty (1920)

Doing a rundown of Film Noir today on my other Blogspot Scare Me On Fridays today as part a Fright Month celebration, so I thought it would be cool to post a silent crime film here as well.  Lon Chaney Sr. may be best known for his role in iconic silent horror films, but he was just as convincing in other genre roles as well, such as the case here.  Here is plays the very creepy amputee gangster Blizzard; it is considered his breakout role.  The film was directed by Wallace Worsley, who would go on to direct Chaney in several of his most famous roles, including The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (1923).
