The Penalty

The Penalty

Directed by Wallace Worsley

A vicious criminal plots revenge on the doctor who mistakenly amputated his legs in this twisted silent thriller. Blizzard rules the San Francisco underworld with an iron fist, fueled by anger over his deformity. When Blizzard meets his old doctor’s daughter, he finds a way to infiltrate the doctor’s life and carry out some very biblical justice. Lon Chaney, who often created his own ghoulish makeup, developed intricate devices to achieve Blizzard’s legless look. His efforts paid off, putting Chaney on the path to becoming America’s first true horror icon.

A vicious criminal plots revenge on the doctor who mistakenly amputated his legs.
