    The Penalty (dir: Wallace Worsley, 1920)

    The breakthrough film for Lon Chaney, in which he played a double amputee, Blizzard, who has become the crime lord of San Francisco. In those days there was no blue screens or cgi, so the actor's lower legs were literally strapped up tight against his body. The pain and discomfort must have been enormous.



    The plot is concerned with Blizzard's attempt to get revenge on the doctor whose blunder when newly qualified let to the unnecessary amputations. It's a shame the Hollywood happy ending thing led to the end being a bit of a cop out. The doctor, instead of taking the legs of his own assistant (and the fiancé of his daughter), and grafting them onto Blizzard's stumps, operates on a contusion at the base of Blizzard's skull which had been pressing on his brain since childhood. Relieving the pressure turns him from evil into good straight after waking up.

    So, for Chaney's remarkable performance, 10/10; for the plot 7/10 as the end lets it down badly.

    I thought they had 13 episodes, unless I've mistaken.

    Just finished the Flash Gordon serial.

    There's some wonderfully unintentional comic moments, such as when in the last episode Flash disposes of a bomb placed in their rocket ship by the simple expedient of opening the door whilst in flight (!), or when Prince Barin and Doctor Zarkov go in Barin's ship to rescue Flash and his companions, upon landing Barin opens the door and places a small set of steps outside to exit the ship (when they get back on board, Zarkov is last to enter; he closes the door without retrieving the steps).

    Any beast described as "sacred" is like the red shirt guys in Star Trek; it's doomed!

    All in all, it's still great fun 9/10

    You don't rate the serial (9.5/10) or (10/10)? I mean I rate the Flash Gordon Serial (9.5/10).

    Thinking about it, I found some of the early chapters - which are in effect introducing us to the cast of characters - a little slow. It definitely improved in leaps and bounds after we reach the sky city of the Hawkmen. Oh, and I don't give fractions of points.

    Rodan (Ishiro Honda, 1956)

    The Japanese original is the one I watched earlier. The English dubbed version, released in the U.S. in 1957, had some changes - some scenes shortened or deleted, and others introduced, plus some tweaking to the storyline which, unlike other films perhaps improved this one. I'm hoping to see that later tonight. Seen on Classic Media DVD; the picture was perhaps not quite as good as might have been - whether that's down to the source or simply because they stuffed a lot of material onto one disc; two versions of the film plus a fine documentary about Toho's monster films which is over an hour long, who knows.

    Edit: have now watched the dubbed version also, and yes the small changes made to bring the two Rodans together earlier in the film than in the original, and strengthen the bond between them is a definite improvement. The dubbed on narration by central character Shigeru is a bit 'Hollywood' for my taste though.

    Anyway, 9/10 for both.
