For those who even know Lon Chaney, people simply assume he was "just" a horror actor. In his 18-year career (and short life) with over 150 films to his credit, Chaney played pirates, clowns, cripples, criminals, priests, ventriloquists dressing up in drag in order to burgle (I'm not making that up), many other colorful characters, and certain beloved Hunchbacks and Phantoms. Chaney was the master creator of his characters and makeups but why is he only remembered as a horror star? The Man Of A Thousand Faces has secrets to tell. Find out within.
