Description
Celebrating the virtuosity of the Man of a Thousand Faces!

Long before teams of technicians used computers to bring monsters and superheroes to the screen, one man with little more than a makeup kit and a remarkable acting talent dazzled moviegoers with his ability to transform himself into all manner of men, monsters and outcasts. That man was Lon Chaney.

This 2-disc Chaney celebration includes three of his major works. The Ace of Hearts (a tale of murderous intrigue), Laugh, Clown, Laugh (Chaney is a love-smitten circus clown) and The Unknown (Chaney is an armless knife thrower) are in their most complete surviving versions. Narrated by Kenneth Branagh, Turner Classic Movies' compelling documentary Lon Chaney: A Thousand Faces explodes Chaney's diverse career and very private personal life. They are a few of this genius's thousand faces - faces that continue to amaze and entertain.
