Many actors and actresses have had "The Films of..." books written about them, but Lon Chaney was always overlooked. Now, Michael F. Blake has written a book to fill that void. The book has detailed information relating to cast and crew, ploy synopsis, critical comments of the day and behind-the-scenes information. There are 120 photos from Chaney's films, many never published before. Chaney's film biography, "Man of a Thousand Faces", and a detailed list of unrealized film projects are also included. This book is a necessary reference guide for ALL Chaney fans.

This reference book is packed full of cast listings, story-lines, production info, and contemporary reviews of all of Lon Chaney's known films. There are over 100 photos from his films. Author Blake has also included notes about the films including which ones are extant. Finally, there is a list of other films that he appeared in and unrealized film projects.

There's only one thing to say about Lon Chaney; he was probably one of the top ten greatest actors of the twentieth century (considering the difference in acting today). Even with make up aside, he still managed to turn in a great performance. I believe I saw Michael F. Blake on the Turner Classic Movies documentary, "Man of a thousand faces." He obviously knows what he's talking about when it comes to Lon Chaney and wrote one helluva book. It's interesting to read the critics reviews for his films, and one wonders all the reasearch and time it took to find them. Being a fan of Lon Chaney myself, this is a must read for not even Chaney, but silent films fans all around.

Once again this author astounds with his depth of research - finding in depth descriptions and information about films we may never have a chance of seeing is an amazing feat. Shipping was quick and the book was in excellent condition as well.
