THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN (1956) B&W 71 MINS.
Indestructible Man (1956) is an American black and white science fiction film, an original screenplay by Vy Russell and Sue Dwiggins for producer-director Jack Pollexfen and starring Lon Chaney, Jr.. It was produced independently, and picked up after completion for distribution in the United States by Allied Artists Pictures Corporation. It tells the story of Butcher Benton (Chaney), a double-crossed convicted robber and murderer who dies in the gas chamber and is inadvertently revived by a lone-wolf cancer researcher who claims his body from the prison and subjects it to further massive jolts of electricity. Benton's heart is restimulated, and he revives mad, mute, immensely strong and with skin virtually impervious even to bazooka shells. He sets out to avenge himself on the two henchmen who, in collusion with his attorney, betrayed him in order to steal his loot, and also to contact his stripper-girlfriend who has gone straight and begun dating the detective who brought Benton to justice.
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) SILENT B&W 93 MINS.
The Phantom of the Opera is a 1925 silent film adaptation of the Gaston Leroux novel of the same title directed by Rupert Julian. The film featured Lon Chaney in the title role as the masked and facially deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. It is most famous for Lon Chaney's intentionally horrific, self-applied make-up, which was kept a studio secret until the film's premiere. The film also features Mary Philbin, Norman Kerry, Arthur Edmund Carewe, Gibson Gowland, John St. Polis and Snitz Edwards. The only surviving cast member is Carla Laemmle (born 1909), niece of producer Carl Laemmle, who played a small role as "prima ballerina" in the film when she was about 15. The movie was adapted by Elliott J. Clawson, Frank M. McCormack (uncredited), Tom Reed (titles) and Raymond L. Schrock. It was directed by Rupert Julian, with supplemental direction by Edward Sedgwick, and Lon Chaney (unconfirmed).
