Revenge is a dish best served cold in director Tod Browning's lurid tale of love and vengeance starring Lon Chaney, Lionel Barrymore and Mary Nolan. When his dying wife returns with a baby girl a year after leaving him for Crane (Barrymore), the ivory trader who crippled him, a Limehouse magician named Phroso (Chaney) vows to get even. Placing the baby in a Zanzibar brothel, Phroso spends the next 18 years living with cannibals while he waits for the child to come of age. Summoning the debauched young woman to his jungle lair, Phroso plans to reunite the girl with her long-lost father, after which he'll order the natives to kill the trader and burn Crane's daughter alive!
