"Eve Sutton helps her boyfriend, Carl Briggs, rob the department store for which they work. The next day, her sister Joan realizes that one of the missing pieces, a watch, is similar to one which Carl gave Eve. She then tells Carl's mother about it because Mrs. Briggs is her boss. In addition to the robbery, employees are worried when they hear that the store is being sold by the old owner's son, Charles Phelps, whom Joan accidentally meets in the cane department, shortly after the store closes. A few minutes later, going to use an abandoned elevator, Joan and Charley find the strangled body of Mrs. Briggs. During the course of the murder investigation, a customer, Mrs. Wilson G. Wilson, says that she had seen a suspicious man running out of the store, wearing spats. Worried about her sister, whom she suspects is involved in Mrs. Briggs' murder, Joan resists the friendly overtures of Charley. As Carl is being questioned, he says that he knows who killed his mother, but just as he is about to reveal 'the man's' name, he is killed by a bullet shot from above. Charley then reveals that his father, who loved the store, wanted to keep an eye on everything and had numerous 'whispering windows' throughout the store, from which he could see and hear everything. Eve reveals to Joan most of the story about the robberies, but she refuses to identify the murderer because she fears for her own life. Eve and Mr. Grover, another employee, disappear, then the watch and a tack from the furniture department come to them in the pneumatic tubes and Joan realizes that they are messages from Eve, who is sending them from the furniture department. She then tells Charley, but no one else. Soon the lights go out in the store, and in the chaos, Joan and Grover's voices are heard over the intercom, both screaming for help. Everyone goes to the sixth floor, but they can't find any bodies until Mrs. Wilson's son Albert finds Eve in a box on the seventh floor. Soon more police arrive and turn on the master switches to the lights, but employee Hardy grabs the Captain's gun while Joan and Charley sneak away. When they find Eve, she is alive and reveals that Grover is the killer and head of the gang, which includes Hardy and the other men dressed as police on the sixth floor. Joan overhears what is happening downstairs and hides, pursued by other members of the gang. She hides in an office and starts a small fire to activate the sprinklers and summon the fire department while she sneaks away in a private elevator. As Grover and Watson tie up some of the people and take Charley and the real police hostage, Joan lets the tied up cleaning ladies out and the police and fire departments come. The cleaning ladies capture the gang using mops and buckets and Charley apprehends Grover, holding him until the police arrive to stop the melee. Charley announces that he will not sell the store and proposes to Joan"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
The Unknown = L'Inconnu( Visual )

1 edition published in 1927 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Probably the best of the ten films that Chaney and Browning made together, The Unknown has been described as "one of the most resplendently morbid features ever made ... one of the truly great silent movies". Chaney plays a strangler with two thumbs on one hand masquerading in a circus as Alonzo the Armless Wonder who uses his feet in a knife throwing act. He finds himself rival with the strong man for the affections of a pretty equestrienne (Crawford) who cannot bear to be touched by men. Alonzo believes he has won her love but when his mocking assistant reminds him that marriage would reveal his true identity he plans to have his arms amputated. Truly l'amour fou with a Grand Guignol ending

"Following a series of robberies and murders perpetrated by the Tim Gleason gang, Eldridge, the head of the liquor control board, announces that he has information that will finally bring the gang to justice. Meanwhile, Matt Casey, a reporter for The star tells his editor, Bill Blaine, that he has the same inside information as Eldridge. While they are talking, Ruth Nolan, a small town girl, interrupts them and asks for a job, but Bill doesn't take women reporters seriously and turns her down. Ruth determines to get an exclusive with Eldridge, and follows him, but instead of an interview, she witnesses his murder when his car is pushed off a wharf by a truck. Bill gives Ruth a job after her scoop, but Matt still thinks that women shouldn't be reporters, and refuses to work with her. He then traces the truck used in the murder and helps the police arrest the driver, Murty. When Bill sends Ruth and Matt to the police station to interview Murty, Matt makes her stay in the car in the alley. While she passes the time taking pictures, she accidentally photographs a man carrying a camera. Soon Matt rushes to the car and reveals that Murty was shot by a man disguised as a cameraman. Though Ruth knows she has gotten the story, she doesn't tell Matt. After the disguised cameraman tells members of the gang about Ruth's photograph, they accost her and Matt as they enter The star building, and take her camera. When Bill finds out what has happened he is furious, until Ruth shows him that she hid the film in her purse, thus enabling The star to print the gunman's picture on the front page. Next, Ruth and Matt are assigned to interview Mrs. Murty. After Matt is thrown out of the apartment by Mrs. Murty, Ruth goes in and pretends to be a theatrical agent. She doesn't get a story either, but Bill helps her write a trumped up story about a friend of Eldridge's who is going to reveal his secret information to the police. Though Matt doesn't like Ruth's methods, he is attracted to her and becomes jealous when she agrees to go to the Press Club Masked Ball with Bill. To make Bill jealous, Matt decides to invite Frances, Bill's ex-wife, who still loves Bill, but only sees him when she comes for her alimony checks. Because she is wearing a mask, Bill doesn't recognize Frances and makes a play for her when Matt and Ruth are dancing. Unknown to the real guests, two gangsters have come to the ball to get Ruth out of the way and are wearing disguises. The two men follow her when Bill takes her home, then kidnap the couple. The next day, Bill fruitlessly tries to convince the gangsters that Ruth's story was a fake, but they don't believe him. They are about to shoot him when Matt, who trailed the men by tracking down the costumer from whom they rented their disguises, jumps into the apartment through the window and brandishes a gun. He loses the upper hand when Gleason arrives shortly thereafter, and orders his men to kill the three prisoners when the noise of the next passing elevated train can muffle the shots. Just then, Police Inspector Matson arrives with his men and saves Ruth, Matt and Bill. Finally, with the case closed, Matt decides that he likes women reporters after all, and Bill decides that it is cheaper to remarry Frances than to continue paying her alimony"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
