Bizarre melodrama, set against the backdrop of a Hungarian "palace of illusions," follows the volatile triangle of ladykiller barker Cock Robin (John Gilbert), dancer Salome (Renée Adorée), and the sideshow owner (Lionel Barrymore), who's ready to rig an accident and take his rival out of the picture. Typically outré outing for director Tod Browning also stars Gertrude Short. 76 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Dolby Digital mono music score. Silent with music score.
