The Unknown, 1927

¡Spoilers!
Lon Chaney as a man who made his living in the circus as an armless knife thrower, in love with Joan Crawford, a woman who hated men and their dirty hands. Only Lon was conning everyone and totally had arms. Until he realized that he loved her & she would never return his affection if she knew he had arms (which, btw, he used to choke her dad to death). So he has them surgically removed. Only to return and find out that she’s gotten over the whole arms thing & fell for the circus strong man. Which is the moment this shot was taken.

¡Super-Duper Spoilers!
Lon tries to destroy their love by sabotaging the strong man’s new act & having him ripped in half by driving the horses he’s tied to crazy. Joan tries to calm down one of them, putting her life in danger. Lon rushes to save her and gets trampled and killed. Joan & the strong man live happily ever after.*

*except that they are still carnies.
