Storyline

Lon Chaney was considered the "man of a thousand faces" for his facility with special makeup techniques which allowed him to transform into any role required by a motion picture script. In this one-time stage show, filmed on October 16, 2004 for a live audience at Universal Studios Citywalk, cast members portraying Chaney and several of his creations were brought to life on stage. This DVD is an edited version of the live-to-tape three-camera show as performed at ScreamFest LA. In addition to the seven live performers, many of Chaney's characters are shown as multimedia images that pass across the screen throughout. Written by Scott Essman
