In London's seedy Limehouse district, a master criminal (Lon Chaney) uses his gift for contortion to maintain a cover identity as a kindly, crippled mission manager. When he falls into a rivalry with another crook (Owen Moore) for the attentions of an attractive music hall singer (Renée Adorée), he tries to eliminate the competition via a frame-up for a jewel robbery. Tod Browning directs. 86 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Dolby Digital stereo music score. Silent with music score.
