There will be slaps!
This week at The B-Movie Clubhouse I thought it was time to do a silent film so I picked one of my favorites. It’s He Who Gets Slapped from 1924. The film was directed by Victor Sjöström and stars Lon Chaney,Norma Shearer and John Gilbert.
Story of an inventor who, suffering betrayal in life, makes a career of it by becoming a clown whose act consists of getting slapped by all the other clowns. He falls in love with another circus performer, and those who betrayed him enter his life yet again.
