Synopsis: Lon Chaney, one of the most gifted and versatile actors of the silent era, headlines this exciting double bill of action classics.

In NOMADS OF THE NORTH (1920, 77 min.), three men vie for the love of beautiful Nanette Roland while the majestic north woods become the site for murder, a manhunt, and a raging forest fire. Chaney plays Nanette's true love, Raoul Challoner, who arrives to stop her forced marriage. An accidental death sends the couple fleeing to the north, where lawman Corporal O'Connor (Lewis Stone) doggedly pursues them--and the mayhem begins.

Then, Chaney portrays dope-peddling, safecracking, handicapped hoodlum Wilse Dilling in THE SHOCK (1923, 89 min.), a gripping gangster yarn. Dragging himself from the darkness of Chinatown to the redemptive sunlight of the countryside, Dilling turns away from his life of crime but finds himself pulled back when the father of the woman he loves is blackmailed. Drawn into a whirlpool of vice and intrigue, Dilling fights to retain his humanity as the film careens to a spectacular, earth-shaking climax.
