The Unholy Three

Unholy Three

A film by Tod Browning
Starring Lon Chaney, Mae Busch, Matt Moore

A sideshow ventriloquist, midget, and strongman leave the circus (after an unfortunate child-assaulting incident involving the midget) and form a conspiracy known as “The Unholy Three” with plans to commit a series of robberies.

Figuring a life of crime beats a life in the circus, the trio set themselves up as a bizarro family running a bird store.

Disguised as a little old lady, Echo the ventriloquist (Lon Chaney) and his two carnival cohorts perform a series of Park Avenue robberies. Echo’s sweetheart Rosie (Mae Busch) plays along with The Unholy Three but later changes her mind when their latest burglary ends in murder – and threatens to send an innocent man to their electric chair!
