A man, who as a boy had his legs needlessly amputated, swears revenge on the surgeon. He has become the master of the San Francisco underworld and contrives to take the surgeon's daughter as hostage in order to force him to graft on new legs - the legs of her fiancee. Chaney's performance as the legless anti-hero lends weight to the melodramatic plot. His legendary ability to subject himself to physical discomfort in order to project a tortured mental state dominates the film
