London After Midnight (film)

Who has heard of this film, and who wants to track it down with me, if in fact there is one last copy. :D

actually the last print of that film was lost in an electrical fire in the 60s. if you ever see it now, it's just a slideshow composed of stills from the film and title slides in between to try to give a rough idea of what the film would have been like. it's a shame, i'm sure the original would have been awesome. lon chaney looks so creepy in it.

It's excellent visually, and, to be honest, the writing is bad enough that it doesn't lose much as a series of stills put to music.

I have that DVD.

The slide presentation is very interesting.

It's a shame that there are no more copies of this film.

Chaney's makeup is very interesting. Be a great Halloween costume!
