"He who gets slapped" was the first film ever produced by the M-G-M studios. In this very experimentally artful film, director Seastrom presented esoteric subject matter in highly symbolic scenes. The story involves a circus performer known simply as "He," who is soundly disgraced by his wife and her lover, The Baron. He is the paradox of the circus clown who is always performing in the show to make others laugh, while away from the crowd he is unhappy, still suffering from the slaps of life's reality. In "The unholy three, " two sideshow performers commit robberies by masquerading as an elderly lady and a small child. The film was so popular with audiences that Chaney appeared in a talking version of the movie in 1930. "The unknown" features Chaney playing an armless knife thrower in a circus, using his bogus deformity as a ruse to hide from the police. He is deeply in love with the circus owner's daughter, who coincidentally has a phobia of having men's arms around her. Chaney's performance with his feet (even lighting his own cigarettes with them) and his attempt to become "authentic" in order to permanently seal his relationship with the girl both contribute to making this the strangest love story ever recorded on film

[The hunchback of Notre Dame (silent film)]: A deformed bellringer at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in the late 15th century, rescues a gypsy girl from the evil intentions of her guardian. As the bellringer, Quasimodo, Lon Chaney is a marvel of makeup and nonverbal expression, shuffling through the streets of medieval Paris, communing with the cathedral gargoyles, dutifully suffering the lash and humiliation for a crime committed against another, expressing a heart-rending love for a beautiful gypsy who naively sees only a cruel military officer as the heroic ideal. Based on the novel by Victor Hugo
