Lon Chaney and Cereal?

Many stars endorsed products or allowed their likenesses to appear in conjunction with commercial products, although not to the degree of today's celebrities; but Lon [Chaney] flatly refused to jump on that bandwagon. He once was asked by M-G-M's publicity department to fill out a questionnaire, which included an inquiry as to what kind of breakfast he ate. He replied, "What of it? I can just hear them saying 'Eat Lon Chaney's favorite cereal and look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.'"

  1. That's so funny! I would only eat it on Halloween. ;)

  2. Somehow I picture him a Lucky Charms man.
