False Faces. 1932. USA. Directed by Lowell Sherman. DCP, b&w, 81. min.
The loathsome career of Henry Schireson, the self-styled “King of Quacks” famous for bobbing Fanny Brice's nose and infamous for a botched surgery that necessitated the amputation of a young woman’s legs, is celebrated in Lowell Sherman's False Faces, a delirious film à clef worthy to be spoken of in the same breath with the best of Warren William's pre-Code muckrakers like Bedside (1934), Skyscraper Souls (1932) and The Mouthpiece (1932).
