Musty TV's Maniacal Halloween Countdown - Day 3

Wednesdays this month on Turner Classic Movies are Horror Stars night, and tonight's featured star is the king of silent horror, Lon Chaney.

The marathon will include the following films:

The Unknown
The Phantom of the Opera
The Monster
The Penalty
The Unholy Three
He Who Gets Slapped

All of the above feature amazing performances from Chaney, but I'm going to single out The Unknown as the one to watch just because its bizarro plot about a circus performer (Joan Crawford) who hates to be touched by men falling in love with an armless knife thrower (Lon Chaney) is ripe for a remake just about now...
