The Thirteenth Hour (aka:The 13th Hour) is a 1927 American silent film mystery produced and distributed by Metro Goldwyn Mayer and directed by Chester Franklin.[1][2] The film stars Lionel Barrymore in a role where, as noted criminologist Professor Leroy, he dons a weird series of disguises to hide a dark secret.[3][4][5] This was the first film where Barrymore was cast opposite talented dogs,[6] and the first where he was cast as a serial killer.[7][8]

A print of this film survives in 16mm.[9]


Junior detective Gray (Charles Delaney) discovers that the eccentric criminologist Professor Leroy (Lionel Barrymore) is both a crook and a murderer.[10]
