  • The Remarkable Unreplaceable Lon Chaney Jr.

    Looking back as far as i can remember there was never a time i had not been watching one of his movies. Whether it was High noon with my grandfather or Abbott and Costello meets Frankenstein with my mother he never ceases to amaze me The Wolf Man and Spider baby are two personal favorites. In The Wolf Man Lon showed Larry's pain desperation, emotions all in his eyes. Lon's eyes were literally a portal into his sole. If you haven't looked into his eyes when watching the movie or even looked at a picture of Lon you should take a moment to do so next chance you get you might will notice some thing you hadn't seen. He especially made Larry Talbot easy to relate to for me. He was a talented actor and deserves to be immortalized there will never be another like him. Lon Chaney Jr. was is and ALWAYS WILL BE my favorite actor of all time

    He is truly one of the world's most underrated actors. He was rarely given the credit he deserves, and even in some really horrible movies he was in (by no fault of his own), he was the ONLY bright spot in it. He had the ability to make you care about is character, feel his heartache, even in minuscule roles. And don't even get me started about him in earlier days in shorts and no shirt! Oolala! Please go to www.lonchaney.com and donate towards his star on the walk of fame! It is SHAMEFULLY overdue. Don't turn your back on the Wolfman!

    There's never been anybody else quite like him. Such a totally unique and heartbreaking blend of brutality and sweetness. And really, an impressive variety of roles. he deserves to be remembered for So much besides just the horror roles. I love him in westerns. I'd love to see TCM spark a Lon Chaney Jr. Renaissance, especially with halloween on its way!

    The only actor to play all of the Universal horror movie charactors. Was as good a frankenstein monster as Karloff in my opinion

  • One of the best

  • Lon Chaney jr. The Unsung Actor

    • Film Fan 1982

    I'm Here to talk about Lon Chaney jr. in my opinion one of the greatest actors that evered lived and like so many actors who apperaed in horror movies like Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Vincent Price. Lon Chaney jr. is not reconigzied for the fine work that he has done I mean take a look at his work in Of Mice and Men(1939), High Noon(1952), or Not Has A Stranger(1955). They really show the talents of one of the unsungs actors of america.
