Happy Birthday Lon Chaney Jr.!

Lon Chaney, Jr., born Creighton Chaney on February 10, 1906 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Played the Monster in Son of Frankenstein and Ghost of Frankenstein, as well as the Wolfman in Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman, House of Frankenstein, House of Dracula, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, plus he had a part in Dracula Vs.

  1. Of course, he was also the titular vampire in Son of Dracula. I think his performance as The Count has aged particularly well. Chaney was a large man, which gave him a more intimidating stature than Bela Lugosi or John Carradine.

    So happy birthday to Lon Jr.!
