Lon Chaney nearing the end of his Universal contract
29 July 2011 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

1945's "The Daltons Ride Again" was the last of five Westerns that Lon Chaney did during his starring days at Universal during the 1940s. Like all the others, a routine plot gets a decent workout from a fine cast, apart from the sluggish performance of top billed Alan Curtis (a former male model, never much of an actor), with second billed Chaney stealing his scenes as Grat Dalton, Kent Taylor giving all the orders, Noah Beery Jr. his usual amiable self. Completed in late Sept '45, it had already been a lean year for Lon, who only had done Abbott and Costello's "Here Come the Co-Eds," and the final two entries in the Inner Sanctum series, "Strange Confession" and "Pillow of Death," while just ahead lay "House of Dracula," his exit from the studio that employed him for 28 features, 2 shorts, and 2 serials in five years. Freelancing thereafter, Chaney did just four features in two years before his triumphant return to Universal, reprising his 'baby,' The Wolf Man, in 1948's "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein." Three final titles for the studio were 1951's "Flame of Araby" (costume adventure with Maureen O'Hara), 1952's "The Black Castle" (Gothic horror with Boris Karloff), and 1958's "Money, Women and Guns" (an intriguing mystery-Western starring Jock Mahoney and Kim Hunter).
