In a role that established him as one of the most dynamically terrifying performers of the silent screen, Lon Chaney stars in the Penalty, a grotesque thriller form director Wallace Worsley (The Hunchback of Notre Dame). When an incompetent doctor amputates the legs of a young boy, he has no idea that the youth will grow up to be the immoral and embittered Blizzard, a criminal mastermind who orchestrates a bizarre and heinous plot to avenge himself upon his malefactor. The Penalty teems with irony and sexual menace as Blizzard befriends the surgeon's daughter and serves as an artist's model for her sculptural rendition of Satan, waiting for his moment to show the depth of his demonic desires. In playing the devious Blizzard, Chaney tightly harnessed his legs within a pair of leather stumps, flawlessly rendering the physical disfigurement that so profoundly echoes the misshapen mind that drives this sadistic character toward his violent destiny. As Chaney biographer Michael Blake says, "One has to wonder if the intensity Lon brought to this role might have been due in part to the pain produced by his harness." This special Kino on Video edition is loaded with supplemental features which better one's understanding of the Penalty, Lon Chaney and the great lengths to which he went to craft such a feverishly villainous performances.

Recensioni dei clienti

  • Indispensable pour tout fan du grand Chaney !

    Scritta il 01. gennaio 2012 da Ariane.

    Non seulement The Penalty est l'une des plus sidérantes performances de ce génie du met, mais encore les bonus de ce dvd sont inestimables : les fragments de The Miracle Man (premier succès de Lon), une vidéo expliquant le fameux déguisement de The Penalty, un CM de 1914 (un western !), 2 bandes-annonces, un essai sur Chaney et plein de documents sur The Penalty.
    Tout cet ensemble constitue un "must" absolu pour tout admirateur du merveilleux et unique Lon Chaney !
