The Conrad Veidt Fan Community
I'm a very new Conrad Veidt fan. I've been waiting for months to finally get my hands on The Man Who Laughs. Eventually i stumbled across a super cool video rental store with a huge supply of silent films and found it!|
The movie blew me away. I am already a huge fan of Olga Baclanova, she was of course amazing in that role. But It was Conrad's portrayal of Gwynplaine that was just haunting. His ability to evoke powerful emotions using only the upper half of his face was amazing. Plus, if i may say so, he was incredibly good looking. I know nothing about the man, nor have i seen any other films by him. But i am very eager to change all of that.
Anyways, just a hello and small intro from a fellow fan :)
oh yes, and any suggestions for other films of his to see would be greatly appreciated!
