‘A Tod Browning picture all the way. It starts with action and ends with action. The double double-cross at the opening of the film is worth it alone,’ enthused Variety in 1920. Outside the Law – a crime caper set in the San Francisco underworld – is still a cracker today. You’ll come to see a little-known Lon Chaney film, but you’ll leave a committed Priscilla Dean fan – she plays the moll, as hard-boiled as they come.
