Ten Movies I want to See: He Who gets Slapped

#1: He Who Gets Slapped

This 1924 thriller was the first major film ever produced by the fledgling MGM studios, and has never been on DVD that I could find, even though it seemed to be the biggest thing Lon Chaney did between The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Phantom of the Opera.

I saw about 10-20 minutes as a child, and was excited and disturbed by it, especially his darkly comical act and the hideous audience who laugh at it.

I've always assumed it would show up on DVD, but so far it hasn't.
