THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES, LON
Barely a decade after movies became "talkies", MOTION PICTURE magazine was saluting the silent era and the stars that put Hollywood on the map forever. The Thanks for the Memories photo feature in the February 1941 issue depicts a number of actors and actresses who played in films during the day of the title card. Lon Chaney is seen at the bottom left on the page below. The scene is from THE MIRACLE MAN (1919), co-starring Betty Compson, who paired with Chaney on several pictures in the 1920's.
