Summary
Academy award winner James Cagney gives an unforgettable performance as Lon Chaney in this fascinating true story that follows the life of one of the most iconic and mysterious stars in Hollywood history. Known as the "Man of a Thousand Faces," silent film star Lon Chaney captured the imaginations of the world through his incredibly expressive and transformative roles, such as Quasimodo in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and the Phantom from the original "Phantom of the Opera." Behind the scenes, however, this long-suffering genius's life was filled with trials and tribulations that helped shape some of his most groundbreaking performances
