    James Cagney Man of a Thousand Faces Life Cast. This plaster life cast of actor James Cagney's face was used to recreate the characters made famous by silent-era actor Lon Chaney for the 1957 biopic. Chaney is remembered still for his performances as Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Erik in The Phantom of the Opera, Alonzo the Armless in The Unknown, and others; as well as for the bizarre prosthetics he created in order to bring them to life onscreen. Cagney's performance as Chaney ranks as one of his best. The mold is in Very Fine condition, accompanied by photocopied press clippings regarding the movie and the make-up, and three b&w 8" x 10" promo stills.
