Lon Chaney...London After Midnight,


London After Midnight (1927) is a silent mystery film with horror overtones. The film stars Lon Chaney, Marceline Day, Conrad Nagel, Henry B. Walthall, and Polly Moran and was directed by Tod Browning. It is also a lost film, quite possibly the most famous and eagerly-sought of all lost films. The last known copy was destroyed in a fire in an MGM film vault in 1965.

As you know, Jim, I am a HUGE Lon Chaney Sr fan and your "color" painting of Lon from LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT really took my breath away. It is so beautiful and yet so strange to see Lon in color (instead of the black and white images which we are so used to seeing).
A real treat!!
Thank you...
