The Penalty stars the great American actor Lon Chaney as ‘Blizzard’, a double-amputee crime lord intent on looting San Francisco for his evil ends. The film cemented Chaney’s reputation as master of the gruesome and grotesque ahead of his best-known performance in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Leading Scottish composer Graeme Stephen’s brand-new score for guitar and cello premiered at The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival in March 2018 to great acclaim from critics and audience members alike.

Graeme Stephen and Pete Harvey will perform the new score live on guitar and cello.
