NotesB/W. Silent Lon Chaney plays the "Armless wonder" (Alonzo the Armless) a freak show act though he is a fake. Then he falls in love with a girl who can't stand the touch of a man's hand and he has his arms amputated. Interesting if only for its attitude to the 'freaks'. In some shots Chaney has an arm amputee standing-in for him. For more details visit the excellent Lon Chaney site at: http://members.aol.com/chaneyfan/
