Lon Chaney Sr. actually. He was the one who played the famous Phantom. Notice how his nose is pulled up and flared.
To get the effect he took small flatted, hooks and thin wires and pulled them back over and to the side of his head and applied makeup to cover the wires. Talk about dedication.
Lon Chaney Jr. was also well known in this field as the Wolfman.
