My Favorite Lon Chaney Sr. Movie Is The Unknown (1927)
Comment by Dave Miller on August 1, 2015 at 6:39pm

Lon Chaney Sr. in make-up as the Opera Ghost in the silent classic, The Phantom of the Opera (1925).

According to the Hollywoodland site, "It seems that Chaney’s ghost was reportedly seen sitting on a public bench at the corner of Hollywood and Vine.
Then in October 1942, Chaney’s bench disappeared and his ghost no longer was seen."

Stranger than fiction, it seems. For the whole story:

The page also has a photo of the bench before it disappeared, featuring Lon Chaney Jr.

By the way, I omitted my top favorite. the late great Sir Christopher Lee !

As  many of you are aware both Chaneys are in my top three of favorite actors. Sr. was a master of make up and pantomime, Chaney Jr, was unfortunately type cast early in his career but still managed excellent cameo's and character roles. add to that list Vincent Price and Boris Karloff and you have my top five of all time  greats!

I'VE always been a big fan of both Lon sr.and  jr. As great an artist as he was in silent, its my own personal opinion that Chaney sr would reach thse heights in he sound era. Pantomine was a big part of Lons success . He would have been a star in the talkies, but not the success that he was in the silent. imho

The father of Universal Horror Films played 2 roles in the 1920 production of "Treasure Island." Was there ever a greater artist?

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
