"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

Über mittelalterlichen Folterkammern und lange vergessenen Verliesen erhebt sich majestätisch das Pariser Opernhaus. Für alle, die dem Gesang huldigen, ein Heiligtum. Lon Chaney, der "Mann der tausend Gesichter", auf groteske und bizarre Typen spezialisiert, war in diesem Film als "Phantom" wirklich in seinem Element. Dies ist schlichtweg eine der besten Horrorgeschichten, die je verfilmt wurden. Wer ist das "Phantom der Oper"? Sein Name ist Erik. Er "residiert" im Dunkel verborgener Räume unter dem Opernhaus, offensichtlich ein Mann von großem Reichtum. Seine einzige verzehrende Leidenschaft gilt der wunderschönen Christine Daae, einer Sängerin. Das Gesicht des generösen Bewunderers bleibt immer unter einer Maske verborgen. Erik verspricht Christine ewige Liebe, Ruhm und unermeßlichen Reichtum, wenn sie - als einzige Gegenleistung - seinen Wunsch respektiert: Niemals soll sie versuchen, seine Maske weg. Christine ist eine Frau, die liebt und ihrem Liebsten ganz nahe sein will. Während er an der Orgel sitzt und fürsie spielt, umarmt sie ihn und zieht dabei die Maske weg. In einer der schockierendsten Szenen, die je gefilmt wurden, erblickt man das schreckliche Gesicht des Phantoms zum ersten Mal. Christine ist abgestoßen und angeekelt. Die Liebe des Phantoms wandelt sich in Haß. Sein Leben ist zerstört. Er entläßt Christine aus seiner Unterwelt und warnt sie: Sollte sie sich je einem anderen Manne zuwenden, wird er sie beide töten.
