    The Lamb, the Woman, the Wolf (Universal Film Manufacturing, 1914). Six Sheet (81" X 81").
    Lon Chaney became known as "The Man of a Thousand Faces" as a result of the special make-up effects he developed in many of his great films, most notably as the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera (1925) and as Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923). In this dramatic short subject from early in Chaney's career, he plays the evil character "Wolf" and is joined by his love interest Pauline Bush (Woman) and Murdock MacQuarrie (Lamb). This is the only known poster from this film and Heritage is proud to offer for the first time this magnificent stone litho six sheet. The poster has signs of age and handling, including edge wear, stains in the borders, a tear in the bottom border that extends into the logo, fold wear with tears and fold separation and some slight paper loss. This exceedingly rare poster, from an early Universal Studios film, the company where Chaney would make most of his greatest classics, is one of the earliest known showcasing the man who would later become one of cinema's biggest stars! Don't miss this opportunity to acquire an historic poster! Fine-.
