Lon Chaney, “The Man of a Thousand Faces”
To celebrate the amazing Lon Chaney and TCM’s airing of 16 Chaney classics, I’ve put together a slideshow of a few of his most famous characters. Consider these images a teaser, because still images do not do justice to Lon Chaney’s tranformative performances. For example, in Mr. Wu, Chaney appears physically smaller, well beyond the bounds of what could be achieved with make-up, costume, camera angles, etc. In short, Lon Chaney will blow your mind!
Enjoy this rouge’s gallery and then watch some Lon Chaney!
