The Black Bird cover


There’s no honor among thieves in director Tod Browning’s delirious tale of love and betrayal starring Lon Chaney, Owen Moore and Renée Adorée. A notorious Limehouse criminal, Dan Tate (Chaney) lives a double life. As feared underworld figure The Blackbird, he hides in plain sight posing as his imaginary brother, the Bishop, a kind-but-crippled preacher who runs the local mission. Infatuated with charming French music hall performer Fifi Lorraine (Adorée), Tate’s affections turn to envy when she falls for West End Bertie (Moore), a handsome gentleman thief. With jealousy clouding his reason, Tate employs both his identities in a sinister scheme to destroy his rival and keep Fifi for himself.
