Cat. #0009012: LON CHANEY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Up for grabs by some lucky buyer: The coveted album page which Chaney boldly signed and inscribed for Margery Coes in the 1920s-- the largest example of his autograph on an album lead know to exist, measuring an incredible 6-1/3 x 7-1/3 inches! Extremely rare and outstanding for display! Mary Bayles and Ruth Chatterton sign on the opposite side. In good condition, with one tiny stain in the lower left-hand area. One-of-a-kind horror icon Lon Chaney, Sr. was dubbed the Man of a Thousand Faces for his ability to transform himself, via make-up and body contortion, into every manner of deformed, exotic or unseemly personage.  Before his tragic death of cancer at the age of 47, he was unforgettable in Treasure Island (1920), The Penalty (1920), Outside the Law (1920), Oliver Twist (1922), While Paris Sleeps (1923), The Shock (1923), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923), He Who Gets Slapped (1924), The Monster (1925), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), the silent and talkie versions of The Unholy Three (1926, 1930), The Blackbird (1926), The Road to Mandalay (1926), Tell It to the Marines (1926), Mr. Wu (1927), The Unknown (1927), Mockery (1927), London After Midnight (1927), Laugh, Clown, Laugh (1928), While the City Sleeps (1928), West of Zanzibar (1928), and Where East Is East (1928).
