Abstract:

"Like his father, Lon Chaney Jr. is famous for his portrayal of monsters. From The wolf man to The mummy's curse, he was one of Hollywood's busiest actors during the golden age of horror. His own life was as dramatic as any movie. He was stillborn, but shocked into life when his father plunged him into an icy lake. Raised partly in foster homes after his vaudeville parents divorced, he first worked as a plumbing contractor before trying his hand at acting. Despite his success, he was wracked with self-doubt and battled alcoholism late in his life. Join Biography for an intimate portrait of a great performer, highlighted by the first interviews with his family since his death in 1973"--Cassette box.
