London After Midnight reconstruction to air on Halloween London After Midnight reconstruction article Now don't get too excited; this is a reconstruction, not a restoration. Using the continuity script and images from over 200 stills (not one frame of actual film has been rediscovered since 1967, when a fire destroyed the last known copy), Rick Schmidlin is attempting to present, as much as possible, Tod Browning and Lon Chaneys' long lost film "London After Midnight" in it's complete narrative. (Schmidlin headed the 1998 restoration of Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil"). TCM is scheduling for a Halloween night airing. No actual film of the movie has been located, so I'm still pretty skeptical as to just how this is all gonna work out, but on the other hand, I'm hoping for the best. Simply put, Chaney and Browning rule.
