London After Midnight (MGM, 1927). Photo Still  (8" X 10").
London After Midnight was reconstructed more than ten years ago using more than 200 still photographs and a continuity script (coinciding with the film's 75th anniversary) and released to DVD. The film is considered to be one the "holy grails" of lost cinema. Starring Lon Chaney, the "Man of a Thousand Faces," and directed by Tod Browning, who is most known for directing Dracula (1931) and Freaks (1932), the film is based on a script by Browning and depicts Chaney as a vampire (though in makeup only). 

BIO:
London After Midnight (released in England as "The Hypnotist"), the 1927 Tod Browning silent Scotland Yard detective murder mystery hypnotism horror thriller ("Sherlock Holmes is good.... but just wait till you see - Lon Chaney in London After Midnight"; "A man of a thousand faces in a great detective thriller!"; "Story by Tod Browning"; Chaney is a detective who is trying to solve a "cold case" murder, and because he is an accomplished hypnotist as well, he is able to hypnotize the principals and have them reenact the crime, which reveals who the murderer was; the vampire part of the movie comes from neighbors who are suspected of having committed the murder because they are vampires, and in the movie's most memorable scene, Chaney disguises himself as a vampire!) starring Lon Chaney Sr. (in his first and only role as a vampire!), Marceline Day, Henry B. Walthall, Percy Williams, Conrad Nagel, Polly Moran, Edna Tichenor, and Claude King. Note that this is a "lost movie", and surely the most famous lost movie there is. Many many people have spent a very long time searching for a print of this movie, and hopefully it will turn up some day! Also, note that this film was remade as Mark of the Vampire in 1935.
