London After Midnight is one of the most well-known lost films of all time. In fact, it’s been referred to as the “Holy Grail of lost films.” And now you can own a rare image from this missing classic.
Here at Screenbid, we’re auctioning off tons of images collected by renowned film historian and critic David Del Valle from classic horror movies and cult films. Del Valle’s spent around 50 years collecting rare images that very few people have ever seen from all sorts of movies.
This image is from London After Midnight, a 1927 silent film starring horror movie legend Lon Chaney Sr. In the movie, Chaney Sr. supposedly plays a vampire. We say supposedly, because the film was never released and it’s unknown if any versions of the movie actually exist. But we do know this rare image from the movie definitely exists, and you can buy it for yourself.
