The last known print of Lon Chaney’s London After Midnight (1927) was destroyed in a vault fire 45 years ago. Just as rare is the original one-sheet poster for the film. No copies have ever turned up, even though Chaney was a top star at the time and the film was widely exhibited. The only large poster known to exist is this one from the Argentinian release. It sold at auction for over $41,000.
