Plot Outline:

Alonzo is an apparently armless knife thrower who uses his feet to encircle Estrellita with blades. Zanzi is killed by Alonzo (who really does have arms). Estrellita allows herself to fall in love with Alonzo (she fears men's arms), so he goes to a hospital and has his amputated. Meantime Malabar cures Estrellita of her fear of men's arms, so Alonzo tries to have him killed during a circus act.

This is definitely the best silent movie that was made. Which, also makes it Lon Chaney Sr.'s best. The plot really keeps you on the edge of your seat at all times. This is Joan Crawford's first movie as Joan Crawford. I hope they do a remake of it. Although, I doubt they will, because the scenes where Chaney uses his feet to do things are too un-realistic for today's audience.
