The Man Who Laughs
This is one of my favorites for sure.
THE MAN WHO LAUGHS is a fantastic silent film from 1928 filled with lovely visuals and touching story. Those "in the know" will be aware that the lead was the model for The Joker, but the film goes deeper than that.
I was lucky enough to see this film at the Castro Theater in San Francisco with live organ accompaniment and an even livelier audience. At the end, we were cheering - filled with a mutual love for this film and it's exciting set pieces.
It's available for viewing online - WELL worth checking out.
