Lon Chaney, Sr. was perhaps the greatest star of the 1920s. Surprisingly, he had minor roles for many years before becoming a major star in the late 1910s, when he became Universal's leading actor. His greatest roles were in silent horror classics. Some of his movies include: He Who Gets Slapped, Laugh Clown Laugh, The Unknown, Tell It to the Marines, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, London After Midnight, The Phantom of the Opera, and the Penalty. He only made one sound movie, The Unholy Three, which was a remake of his own silent version, and then sadly, he passed away in 1930 at the age of 47 from throat cancer (apparently just before he could play the starring role in "Dracula"!)
