THEY MADE 'LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT'
Along with cameramen Merritt B. Gerstad and Wallace Chewning, Tod Browning as co-producer and director and Waldemar Young as "scenarist", or scriptwriter, created the still-lost LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT (MGM 1927). Irving Thalberg also was producer and through his influence was also responsible for this thriller/mystery that appears to be lost to the ages.
In the 1928 edition of the FILM DAILY YEARBOOK, Browning and Young shared promo spots. Noted studio photographers Jack Freulich took the shot of Browning and Clarence Sinclair Bull shot Young.
