London after Midnight-1927 by 4gottenlore London after Midnight-1927 by 4gottenlore
London after midnight (1927) starring the man of a thousand faces Lon Chaney. As of now no print exist of the film so it is considered a lost film, there are plenty of stills from the movie as well as promotional photos, posters and existing script related to this film. Some years back a reconstruction of the film was made using the production stills and utilizing the script to construct a movie that told the story as closely as they could. I would recommend seeing that if interested and they do play it on the "TCM" station from time to time and usually around Halloween. Of course, the great makeup job by Lon Chaney has become iconic and influential over the years. A remake of this film was later made in 1935 entitled " Mark of the Vampire" starring Bela Lugosi, and both films were directed by the same director Tod Browning who also directed the original Universal "Dracula" movie in 1931.

Man, this pic kicks so much ass on so many levels. *Sigh* If only we knew what actually went on in that film! I pray we find it someday, somehow, somewhere.

I still hold out hope that a print will be found somewhere, someday.

Never know, but if they can still find prints of Metropolis, I think its a possibility that this one could show up some day:pumpkin:

I like this alot, it's Very Cool, a friend of my published the official shooting script of the film with almost the whole film in stills. He just re-released the book with additional parts to it. I have a copy of the first edition. If you go to Bear Manor Media's website you can check out the book, His name is Philip J. Riley, I did a cover for one of his other books, it was a script for the original Frankenstein the play, which is kind of different from the film. He has a whole series of script books from the old Universal Monster films. And he's currently working on scripts from movies that never happened but were written, like Dracula verses The Wolf Man and The Return of Frankenstein.

I think he came out here and did a signing at the "Dark Delicacies" in Burbank, didn't have a chance to go there but definitely want to get some of his books, especially "Cagliostro", "Frankenstein meets the Wolf man", and "James Whale's Dracula's Daughter", and thank you, glad you like this digital doodle :pumpkin:

Yep, That was him at the signing, same weekend as Monsterpalooza! He gave me a bunch of his books abut 20 years ago from his first series, now when I look them up online they're worth a couple hundred apiece, shame he never signed them for me, but now we live on opposite coasts.

You're welcome : }. Unfortunately I haven't seen any Lon Chaney work, although I really want to with Phantom of the Opera : D but I have seen a lot of his son, Lon Chaney Jr.'s work : D

The phantom is definitely one of his best monster performances, and is a really fun film to watch. If you get a chance its on youtube [link] , it's definitely worth a view:pumpkin:

As much as I like Bela...he wasn't Lon Chaney. Another great homage, 4gotten! The usual magic touches make this a wonderful image to study.

Very true, a lot of people had speculated what Chaney's makeup would have been had he lived to play "Dracula" in the 1931 universal film, think it would have been something creepy and weird as only the man of a thousand faces could do, And thank you:pumpkin:

Thank you, actually this is based off of one of the international posters for this film [link] the big difference is that they did not have a likeness of Lon Chaney on the poster, to me he looks a bit more like Dr. Caligari, in any case thank you:pumpkin:
