    Description

    Where East is East (MGM, 1929). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    In his next to last silent film and last partnership with director Tod Browning, Lon Chaney plays an grotesquely scarred animal trapper in Indo-China whose beloved daughter (Lupe Velez), is betrayed by her scheming mother (Estelle Taylor), who comes between her and her fiance and seduces him. The mother also is scheming to have Chaney murdered, so he devises a brutal end for her. This incredibly rare stone litho poster is the only copy we are aware of and features a large headshot of Chaney and is in remarkable condition and completely unrestored. There are only pinpoint crossfold separations, light wrinkling, and one pinhole in each corner. Folded, Very Fine+.
