Chaney Sr. -related stuff...

Found this Dutch film periodical a few years ago--it dates to the late 1920s. 


A crystal from the PHANTOM OF THE OPERA CHANDELIER (1925), from the George Turner Collection

Ron Borst was kind enough to find the accompanying photograph for me of the chandelier and some studio workmen--you can see some of the crystals lying on the floor!

And this photo enlargement, formerly in Forry Ackerman's collection--of Lon Sr. as Singapore Joe in the 1926 ROAD TO MANDALAY--of which only fragments exist.  What a story!  A tale of greed, misery, sex and jealousy!
