PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, THE (1925) Lon Chaney, Mary Philbin photo

$1,500.00

[Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1925] Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo. There is some modest wear and aging to the image. Near fine.

Vintage contact print shows much of the detail of Lon Chaney’s make-up in the sequence after his mask has been ripped off by Christine (Mary Philbin).

Because the studio wanted his make-up to be a shock to audiences, photos like this one are exceedingly scarce.
