Silent movie

Yesterday TCM was showing the movies of Lon Chaney. This photo is from Mr. Wu with co-star Rene Adoree.
I liked Tell It To The Marines where Chaney was seen with no makeup at all. He was known as the man of a thousand faces but he wanted to look more natural in the film where he portrayed a marine sargeant.
These movies from the 1920's are amazingly preserved and the show what our ancestors were seeing on film; strange plots and plenty of action!
