51. The Unholy Three (1925)

Good plot and actors. If it wasn't for the endless courtroom hassle in the latter quarter of the film, this would have been excellent.

he reminded me of Ron Mael from Sparks

Victor McLaglen (39) as Hercules

Lon (42) as Echo

Mae Busch (34) as Rosie. I liked her.

Harry Earles (23) played Tweedledee. He was fascinating :
One of the weirdest scenes I've seen in a silent film so far.

Lon in disguise, as Mrs O'Grady. Awesome performance.

Matt Moore (37) was cute and awww inducing as Hector MacDonald. I suppose it was the glasses that did the trick for me.

definitely one of those "grab him by the lapels" kind of coats
