The Shock (1923)

Wilse Dilling (Lon Chaney), a crippled brute living in the savage streets of Chinatown, receives a coded message to go to the home of his boss, Ann Cardington, known as Queen Ann (Christine Mayo), a powerful crime boss feared in the underworld.

When Wilse meets with her, she sends him to the town of Fallbrook, where he is to await her instructions in dealing with a former lover of hers, a banker named Micha Hadley (William Welsh), who had betrayed her.

Being practically wheelchair-bound has not stopped Dilling from committing a lengthy series of crimes, but to his surprise, he finds that the small town atmosphere makes him feel differently about everything. He finds a good friend in Hadley’s daughter Gertrude, whom Wilse not only falls in love with but she helps him believe that he can make a fresh start. But Wilse’s new-found contentment is soon shattered by a series of new developments which includes trying to stop Queen Ann’s plot towards Hadley and Gertrude being killed.
