Halloween 2014 – From the Artists’ Viewpoint

There are a number of talented modern-day artists who have turned their skills to the Classic Horror Films of Hollywood’s Golden Age. These individuals have made their works available on the Internet so what follows is a Halloween roundup with credit given where it is properly deserved.

Robert Semler offers a few of the 1,000 Faces of Lon Chaney Sr.:

  1. Beautiful. Thanks for posting these. I particularly loved the ones of Lugosi and Hull but they are all notable. Happy Halloween!

  2. I love this site. It just fascinates me to see all these stars in color. Please keep up the phenomenal work!

  3. Kudos to the artists! But would the movies have been as scary if they were photographed in color?
