Tuesday's Fright Film Tidbit
London After Midnight (1927) is undeniably one of the most famous and sought after of all lost films. The last known copy of the film was destroyed in the infamous 1967 MGM Vault fire. In this film Chaney plays dual roles of Inspector Edward C. Burke and The Man in the Beaver Hat. It was the character “The Man in the Beaver Hat” a supposed vampire that put Lon Chaney at the top of Universal’s short list for actors for the leading role in Dracula which was at that time in preproduction.
