LON CHANEY LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT MAGAZINE CLIPPING
From the October 8, 1927 issue of Moving Picture World is this photo and caption of the great Lon Chaney and it mentions his upcoming film The Hypnotist by Tod Browning. The Hypnotist (original title and UK title) is better known as London After Midnight. Too bad this magazine didn't add an article with the photo, but I thought all you zombies out there would enjoy seeing it.
I wish someone would hurry up and find this film as I’ve been wanting to see it since I was a kid. The Turner Classic Movies recreation was nice, but I want to see the real thing. Maybe I’ll find it in a flea market someday!
