Gary Lucas Plays "The Unholy Three"--accompanying the Tod Browning/Lon Chaney silent film with original live solo guitar score

Director: Tod Browning.
One of Tod Browning and Lon Chaneys greatest films, this 1925 silent classic was remade with Chaney in a sound version--but this original surpasses it by far, especially with the dark, suspenseful music master guitarist/composer Gary Lucas ("The Thinking Man's Guitar Hero") coaxes out of his guitar. Three carnival mugs, a strongman (Victor McGlagen), a "baby" (Harry Earles) and a ventriloquist (Lon Chaney) join forces to create a criminal gang that robs and terrorizes a community until finally brought to justice. A thriller from beginning to end, enhanced y Lucas' live solo guitar score: http://garylucas.com/www/unholy
