THUNDER, STARRING LON CHANEY, adapted by Jean de Lascoumettes, edited by Philip J. Riley

Thunder was the last silent film for Lon Chaney. His health was not good during the shoot and for the first time in his career he held up production while he recuperated. He plays Grumpy Anderson, a near retirement, old workhorse of a train engineer. It is said that a piece of artificial snow, used in the production, lodged in his throat, causing an infection that led to his untimely death at age 47 on August 26, 1930. Only a few fragments of the film exist.

This is the original novel on which the film treatment was based, first published in 1930 in France. Translated into English by Eric McNaughton.,
