And a reason: to uncover the different facets of a singular personality, which impressed and modified in a substantial way the form of developing the genre of terror in the Spanish speaking countries.

35. Screen Snapshots: Laguna U.S.A. (1947 Short Film)
The correct and full name of this short is "Screen Snapshots: Laguna,U.S.A." (Columbia production number 9852), in which director/producer Ralph Staub is out touring Laguna Beach. While there, he drops in at the Griffin Theatre where actors Brian Aherne, Lon Chaney Jr., Dane Clark and Eddie Bracken are rehearsing, as members of the Griffin Theatre Players, their roles in an upcoming stage presentation of "Of Mice and Men."

He is in this film as himself, an actor, rehearsing the role of "Lennie" (which he played in the 1939 film) for a stage production of "Of Mice and Men." That makes a slight difference in identifying his role in this short. The Griffin Theatre Players was an orginization of (mainly) film players who liked to get back "to their roots" and "on the boards" once in a while.
