“`Eric Charles Mokotoff is a major fan of cinema, and he has created a petition to encourage posthumous recognition for the great silent star, Lon Chaney. He writes:

In order to preserve the importance and history of Silent Film, we ask the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to honor the great Lon Chaney by acknowledging him in the Academy with a special lifetime award.

Lon Chaney has never been recognized by the Academy, and to date, merely has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That is not enough. 

His filmography is extensive and his contribution to movie history as The Man of 1000 Faces needs to be recognized.

Many of his films are lost and we are now ready to celebrate one hundred years of his eternal gift.

Generations, school, colleges etc can benefit from the life lessons he taught us on the silver screen. His portrayal of those less fortunate as lessons for even today as we become more inclusive to the outcasts of society because of their birth of having special needs or disabilities.

Now more then ever we need to share Chaney’s work and preserve and repair his films forever.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
