Tod Browning, 1927. Such a crazy premise: A bad man with two thumbs (Lon Chaney) disguises himself as an armless circus performer to avoid arrest. But when he falls in love with Joan Crawford things things get really complicated. It sounds like a comedy, but there is some really weird shit going on here. This is an oddball psychosexual circus drama as well as a morality tale told in the most unconventional way.
