Full Moon Tonite

Tonite there will be a full moon. Most people think of werewolves with the full moon or the Twilight sagas or Lon Chaney Jr who played Wolf Man.

I think of Lon Chaney Sr, the man of a 1,000 faces who never played a werewolf but he did play a hunchback.

Lon Chaney Sr was born in good ole Colorado Springs in 1883. His grandfather started the Colo. School for the Education of Mutes, now known as The Colo School for the Deaf & Blind. And as you all know, I have a deep love for the Colo. School for the Deaf & Blind :)

Lon's parents met at this school, they were deaf. He would pantomime for his parents, this was the ground work for his acting. He became a great actor.
