The long lost ‘London After Midnight’ has had film fans pulling there hair out wondering if the movie will ever see the light of day. The closest we have seen was an attempt to put stills of the film together to narrate the story, but it fails to do the film justice. Filmaker Robert Parigi might change that though…
Straight from his facebook page, Parigi states:
“I’m noticing chatter that a 7-reel print of long-lost Todd Browning/Lon Chaney film LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT (featuring Chaney’s iconic “Man in the Beaver Hat” Vampire) has been discovered in Spain!
I had long heard rumors of a print in Cuba. Is this perhaps that print, now sent to Spain?
20 years ago, I heard rumors of a print in the U.S., and contacted the supposed owner offering to transfer it to (then state-of-the-art) D1, but when it came time to produce the print he backed out.”
The news isn’t much to go on, but it still gives fans hope that maybe one day they will finally get to see the legend themselves!
