2009 Inductee-- Lon Chaney

¸          Lon Chaney—(1883-1930):  “The Man of a Thousand Faces,” Chaney was the king of silent horror.  Best known for his portrayal of Erik, the hideously scarred villain in Rupert Julian’s 1925 version of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, Chaney’s uncanny ability to transform himself to fit virtually any role, with nothing more than the tricks in his make-up box, made him a legend.
