    I watched both Phantom and Hunchback on Netflix and I can see why Lon Chaney was a legend! His makeup work must’ve looked really awesome in those days.

    damn, those Metro PCS guys piss me off with their fucking cellular mongoose Indian accents. They are so obnoxious that I am becoming racist against Indian people since I watch so many of these videos and they are advertised before every single one of them! lol

    There was a cartoon released shortly after his death portraying Chaney in death with a skeletal hand placing a skull over his face a caption below read “The Final Face”. I remember seeing it on one of his TCM bio pics.

    I always wondered what role Lon Chaney wore that wierd-ass make-up in? Now I know.
    I saw Phantom of the Opera in London a few months ago, it was amazing. Too bad Chaney wasn’t in the lead role.

    You know, in a vague sort of way Lon’s characters remind me very much of Danny DeVito’s portrayal of The Penguin, in Batman Returns.

    A monster doesn’t have to be a monster by default…sometimes, the monster is just a misfit.

    It’s coming out on Blu-Ray, but I haven’t heard yet if it looks good in high definition. Still, I would like to check it out.

    The only other version of this that I saw was Hammer’s Phantom of the Opera with Herbert Lom in the title role. He’s actually pretty good in the role that he later spoofed it in the 70’s with his roles in Murders in the Rue Morgue (1971) and The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976).

    This seems more like a Lon Chaney video rather than a Phantom of the Opera video. I was hoping to hear your opinions on the FILM rather than the actor–even if I did agree with your opinions here.

    That’s not true a copy of London after midnight has been found some guy said that he saw London after midnight with his own eyes not the picture one the actual film i’m not kidding.

    Right controversial time, this team battle is sure to throw team Edward or team Jacob out the window. Who do you guys vote for:team Erik or team Raoul

    Great review…although that print is the worst I’ve seen yet. Where did you dig it up? (and yes, my choice of words is deliberate lol 😉

    Even for today the makeup work on Lon Chaney is amazing and groundbreaking.
