2009 Inductee-- Lon Chaney, Jr.

¸          Lon Chaney, Jr.—(1906-1973):  “I’ve played ‘em all, but the Wolf-Man was all mine.”  Born Creighton Chaney, the studio insisted that he take the name of his famous father, and Lon Chaney, Jr. became perhaps the most accomplished star in Universal Horrors.  The only actor to portray all four of Universal’s Classic Monsters, and the only one [prior to 2010] to play his signature character, Larry Talbot… aka The Wolf-Man.
