Browning and Chaney

Tod Browning; the director of such classics as 'Dracula' (1931) and 'Freaks' (1932) also made some other really interesting and frightening movies. Here's a page displaying some of the posters, lobby cards and film stills from some of his films. As you can tell by reading the posters one of his favorite actors must have been Lon Chaney. Lon was "the man of thousand faces". If he had been hired for The 'Freaks' he surely could have played siamese twins or a legless freak. But Browning wanted the real stuff. And real it is... SUR-REAL! (Thanks to Quiddity)
