FULL SYNOPSIS

This melodrama is the last silent film of Lon Chaney. There is a soundtrack, but it only contains sound effects. The plot centers on a railroad engineer with an obsession for running his train on time. His slavishness to promptness causes several tragedies which alienate him from his family. Fortunately, by the story's end, the engineer restores their faith in him and validates his obsession by forcing his train through a flood to bring badly needed Red Cross supplies to the victims. Among the afflicted are his estranged son and a sympathetic nightclub singer. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
