Movie-A-Day #279: London After Midnight (1927).

October 6, 2011

Director Tod Browning died on this date in 1962. Once the master of macabre storytelling in Hollywood – particularly for his collaborations with Lon Chaney, like “London After Midnight” – but his career sputtered and eventually died in the 1930s through a combination of alcoholism and studio blackballing. He died practically unknown, sadly not living long enough to see his work rediscovered and finally fully appreciated in the mid-1960s.
