SUMMER UNDER THE STARS: LON CHANEY
August 2, 2017

The Man of a Thousand Faces has 15 films on tap, only one is a sound film.

Mariah’s Picks

The Unknown (1927-2 pm/1 pm c)

Chaney plays a guy who, when he discovers that the woman he loves doesn’t like to be touched, he has his arms amputated.  Seriously, I’m not kidding.  Joan Crawford is the woman.


The Phantom of the Opera (1925-8 pm/7 pm c)

Chaney in his most remembered role.


Tell it to the Marines (1926-11:15 pm/10:15 pm c)

Gasp!  Chaney without makeup!


West of Zanzibar (1928-1:15 am/12:15 am c)

Chaney is a bitter, crippled man who enacts revenge to those who wronged him. I don’t want to say anymore, just watch.  It is effed up.
