YOUNG CREIGHTON CHANEY


As close as a beefcake shot could get of an actor in the 1930's, a young, 25-year-old Creighton Chaney is seen above in the pages of the November 1932 issue of the Spanish-language film magazine, CINE-MUNDIAL.

Chaney was starring in only his second credited role in the RKO-distributed, 12-part serial, THE LAST FRONTIER. He played newspaper man Tom Kirby, whose alter ego is the frontier crime-fighting The Black Ghost, made popular in radio dramas of the day. Joe Bonomo also played in the film; he was a stunt double for Chaney's more famous father, Lon, in the 1923 HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME.
