Lon Chaney's Flagship Role as the Phantom of the Opera
Another Nice Photo of Lon Chaney Sr. as Himself
Lon Chaney, Sr. was a great horror movie actor with such characters as the Phantom of the Opera, but did you know that he never played a non-human character? The closest he ever came was the FALSE vampire in London After Midnight. He is also the only man to play a legless villian AND an armless one.
(from Erik...) His son Lon Chaney, Jr. continued his father's horror legacy with classics such as The Wolfman. He also starred in non-horror films such as Of Mice and Men.
