Movie Info

It's possible to "view" London After Midnight, the most successful (in box-office terms) collaboration between director Tod Browning and actor Lon Chaney, in only one form, a "photographic reconstruction" by Rick Schmidlin, who was also responsible for the reconstruction of Erich von Stroheim's legendary Greed. The difference here is that no motion-picture elements still exist; the last known print was lost in a fire in the mid-'60s. Despite the loss of many hours of footage from London After Midnight, the core action remains available on film. Schmidlin assembled stills and added a musical score by Robert Israel, using a shooting script to recreate the intertitles. This version, which premiered on Turner Classic Movies in 2002, clocks in at 48 minutes, considerably shorter than the film's original running time.

Restored stills version is surprisingly good entertainment, showing off Lon Chaney's colorful gift of disguise.

It's a classy red herring vampire teaser.

Audience Reviews for London After Midnight

I was kinda confused by this movie, which is probably due to the fact that all we have are stills and some inter titles. I hope they can restore this film sometime in the future.
