The Next Corner was a 1924 American silent romantic melodrama directed by Sam Wood. The film starred Dorothy Mackaill and Lon Chaney. Based on the romance novel of the same name by Kate Jordan, the film was produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures. The Next Corner is presumed lost.
Throughout the years, the film has been cited as a Chaney picture but, according to the American Film Institute Catalog, his character has little screen time. In fact, of all Chaney's feature films of the 1920s, this picture seems to have less of him on screen than any other feature he made. The leading character is portrayed by Dorothy Mackaill, then an up and coming young star. This film was Chaney's only Paramount film of the 1920s, the last having been Treasure Island, and was one of the last films he appeared in as a freelance artist before signing a multiple picture deal with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
