    Description

    "Man of a Thousand Faces" Academy Award Nomination Plaque. Actor Lon Chaney earned his nickname "The Man of a Thousand Faces" with a gallery of grotesque, misshapen characters created through a combination of elaborate makeup, contorted postures, and sensitive performances. Actor James Cagney played Chaney in this biopic, giving one of his best performances ever. Featured is the 11" x 13 ½" plaque announcing the movie's nomination for an Oscar in the category of Best Story and Screenplay, presented to writers Ralph Wheelright, R. Wright Campbell, Ivan Goff, and Ben Roberts. (Alas, they lost out to George Wells and his screenplay for "Designing Woman.") In pristine condition.
