Cult Actor of the Month - Lon Chaney Jr

After my fanboy gushings over Son of Dracula it's probably inevitable that our Cult Actor of the Month for November should be none other Lon Chaney Jr!

I feel about Chaney somewhat the way I feel about Bela Lugosi. I like both actors more in roles other than the ones for which they're most famous. In Chaney's case I'm very fond of a rather obscure 1956 movie he made called Indestructible Man. It has a nice film noir vibe to it, combined with a plotline that is pure 50s sci-fi.

What's your favourite performance by Chaney?
