Lon Chaney Jr Research

Hi folks. Long time no see. ;-) I'm doing a bit of research on Lon at the moment and maybe someone out there has something useful.

(The last time I mentioned an elusive item required on here, I actually got it. So it doesn't hurt!)

Info/recollections/video/photos/sounds needed on some later Lon appearances:

*The Tonight Show, Oct '69 (video destroyed by studio, only a terrible or maybe no longer existent sound recording known)
*Appearance on Pat Boone show (no, really)
*The Kowboys (a Monkees-style show w/western theme -- sounds awful -- aired in 1970, never picked up as a series -- Lon *may* have had a cameo but not verified)
*Two (or three) commercials -- one for Pontiac circa '69, and possibly a later one also featuring Glenn Strange in monster getup -- and there was a 1967 Bold detergent commercial, but it's unclear if these two are one and the same
*The Female Bunch (Lon's last film, not officially available, several overpriced DVD-Rs floating around) (it's apparently a terrible film, but needs must...)
*Anything else that might be scarce or interesting from *any* period!

Private mail A-OK! Thanks for reading, anyhoo.

eight years pass...

I watched the Indestructible Man the other day - it was a downer because the villain was much more likable than the "hero" and it has the worst ending I've seen in some time where a guy gets a woman fired from her job so she can marry him and spend all her time being a wife
