(1924, Sjöström) MGM’s very first production stars three of the silent screen’s greatest stars – Lon Chaney, John Gilbert and Norma Shearer – in Sjöström’s lyrical drama of circus life. “Man of a Thousand Faces” Chaney is the “He” of the title, an embittered scientist who joins the circus as a clown. 16mm print courtesy Yale Film Archive.
