Upcoming Screening: Lon Chaney's "The Penalty" at the Alex Theatre

The Alex Film Society will screen The Penalty on September 18 at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale.  The 1920 silent film stars Lon Chaney as Blizzard, an angry, sadistic crime boss hellbent on exacting bitter revenge on the doctor who jumped the gun in amputating his legs following a childhood accident.

The film will be accompanied by a live musical score, along with a display of Chaney makeup, props and costumes.
