THE SHOCK
1923, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Lambert Hillyer

Horror legend Lon Chaney stars as “Dope peddler, safe cracker, gun - man Wilse Dilling,” who is sent to San Francisco to blackmail a banker but falls for his daughter instead. This fine silent melodrama features a recreation of the devastating 1906 earthquake.
