Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
Above, a great cover for the print version of Tod Browning’s 1920 crime film Outside the Law, with Priscilla Dean and Lon Chaney, both of whom play dual roles. The film’s copyright lapsed, which puts it in the public domain. That means it’s legally downloadable, for those who care about such details. Or you can watch it here. It’s silent, but it’s worth a viewing. And if you simply can’t abide silent films, try it as background visuals at your next party. It’s trippy.
