London After Midnight (released in England as "The Hypnotist"), the 1927 Tod Browning (best remembered as the director of "Dracula" and "Freaks", Browning came from a good family but fell in love with a circus dancer as a teenager, and he worked in the circus in order to be with her, and later he met D.W. Griffith, which led to acting jobs, and he became a director, having his first success with the silent version of "The Unholy Three", and he remained in the horror genre; he retired in 1939, but lived until 1962; no doubt, someone will eventually make a movie about his life, likely with Johnny Depp in the lead role!) Scotland Yard detective murder mystery hypnotism horror thriller (Chaney is a detective who is trying to solve a "cold case" murder, and because he is an accomplished hypnotist as well, he is able to hypnotize the principals and have them reenact the crime, which reveals who the murderer was; the vampire part of the movie comes from neighbors who are suspected of having committed the murder because they are vampires, and in the movie's most memorable scene, Chaney disguises himself as a vampire!) starring Lon Chaney Sr. (in his first and only role as a vampire!), Marceline Day, Henry B. Walthall, Percy Williams, Conrad Nagel, Polly Moran, Edna Tichenor, and Claude King. Note that this is a "lost movie", and surely the most famous lost movie there is. Many many people have spent a very long time searching for a print of this movie, and hopefully it will turn up some day!
