5.0 out of 5 stars classic chaney., 11 Jun. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lon Chaney Collection [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
glad to finally see something of lon chaney.

for a long time , the only films i have seen were "phantom of the opera" and "the hunchback of notre dame."

thankfully, that has all changed for the better.

thrilled to see a reconstructed version of the lost film "london after midnight" and also "the unknown," both directed by regular chaney collaborator tod browning. the inclusion of "laugh, clown, laugh" is also an added bonus. but the choice "ace of hearts" lets everything down slightly.

this could have been a six dvd set of films like "the monster," "the unholy three,"(both versions) "west of zanibar," "tell it to the marines," "HE who gets slapped" etc.

the documentary on this collection is one of the best and most detailed i have ever seen: plenty of home footage and clips of chaney's most famous films.

it is certainly true that whilst he wasn't a horror actor ,some of his films were rather bizarre and eccentric.

i really hope that this release will be the first of many.
