I looked at the schedule for May 2004 and they said that TCM will be showing Chaney's famous 1927 lost film "London After Midnight". But I'm not sure it's the REAL movie, because it says it run 47 minutes when the REAL movie runs over 56 minutes. It doesn't say anything if it's the reconstruction or what. They are also showing "Man Of A Thousand Faces(1957)", "The Penalty(1920)" for the very first time, and "The Unknown(1927)". LAM will be shown at 1AM(Pacific Time). I guess we will have to watch it and find out. This is not a joke!
So dirty that it's lost! The sound record of this film was found, but the film itself is lost. This film wasn't even released in theatres because they said it was too dirty. The guy at the studio told them to destroy all known prints to exist.
Did anybody notice that last sunday, they were going to air Alfred Hitchcock's "Champagne", but instead they aired Hitchcock's "Easy Virtue". Very weird! Robert Osbourne didn't even host it. Maybe he called in sick that night and he couldn't host? I'm very surprised that nobody has said anything about it. By the way, I'm new here. EDIT: We're sorry that "Champagne" wasn't able to be aired on Sunday. We received a version of the scheduled silent film without a score and didn't want to show the film incomplete. We replaced it with another Alfred Hitchcock silent, "Easy Virtue"
