    Vintage Lon Chaney "London After Midnight" Photo. A very rare b&w 11" x 14" promo shot of Chaney as the ghoulish Professor Burke in director Tod Browning's 1927 silent horror movie, a lost classic of which no prints are known to exist. This wonderfully vile photo features a great view of Chaney's stunning make-up for the role (one of his last performances), which included a set of false teeth -- made from animal teeth -- that were so uncomfortable he could only wear them for a few minutes at a time. In Excellent condition with very light wear and very little discoloration, it features legendary MGM photographer Ruth Harriet Louise's studio stamp on the back and embossed name stamp on the lower right corner.
