Lee and Daniel return to see if they can get a few chuckles out of Paul Leni's "The Man Who Laughs" (1928), featuring another signature performance from Conrad Veidt. Is this a horror film? Is this a true silent film? Duchesses having orgasms; facial scars; German expressionism; iron maidens being bullshit; perfumed wig-wearing fops; yawning in unison; and the rules for doing step sibling porn are just a few of the things brought up in this episode, as well as a large amount of listener comments, and what Lee has watched as of late.
