As the son of the legendary Man of a Thousand Faces, Lon Chaney Jr had a lot to live up to, but his career saw him step out of his father's shadow and establish himself as a horror movie icon in his own right. Classic Monsters presents Lon Chaney Jr: Heir to the Monster Throne, a beautiful publication celebrating the life and work of one of classic horror's most recognizable stars.
Presented in color, and produced to the highest standard, this biographical publication is a true collector's item. The matt cover features gloss highlights, while the crisp inner pages are packed with color imagery and high-quality image reproduction, not to mention an insightful journey through the eventful life of the man himself.
From his turbulent early life, through the ups and downs of his career to his status as the star of some of horror's most-beloved motion pictures, our Lon Chaney Jr biography is the perfect companion to his many movies. From Dynamo Dan the Electrical Man in 1941's Man Made Monster, through tortured Larry Talbot in The Wolf Man (1941), to the vampire Alucard in Son of Dracula (1943), his many monstrous performances made him the face of horror for many a monster kid.
But of course, there was plenty more to his life, and this lovingly written Lon Chaney biography explores his off-screen character, too. As a defender of downtrodden colleagues and a studio hell raiser alike, he made a huge impression on those around him. No fan of Lon Chaney Jr should be without a copy of this unique biographical title.
