Classic Horrors Club – The Thousand Faces of Lon Chaney

“The trick in this business is to do something totally different from the rest so they’ll take notice of you.”

– Lon Chaney to Boris Karloff

This month in episode 67 of the Classic Horrors Club Podcast, Jeff Owens and I celebrate the birthday of the great Lon Chaney, the “Man of a Thousand Faces.” You already know him from the classic films The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) and Phantom of the Opera (1925), but tune in as we do a deeper dive by celebrating his career and taking a look at He Who Gets Slapped (1924), The Monster (1925) and The Unknown (1927)!

Don’t forget to check out the video companion on our YouTube channel. It contains exclusive content not available in this month’s podcast that you don’t want to miss!

Call us at (616) 649-2582 (CLUB), email at or join us in our clubhouse at!

We’d also appreciate if you’d give us an honest rating on Apple Podcasts or SoundCloud. Thank you!
