    Description

    The Unknown (Gaumont Metro Goldwyn, 1927). French Grande (43.5" X 59").
    When genius director Tod Browning and Lon Chaney got together, they created a masterful, disturbing, horror classic that takes audiences for a shocking ride. Chaney stars as an imposter "armless" knife thrower in a circus act who falls in love with the owner's daughter Nanon. Tragedy soon follows when the strongman (Norman Kerry) turns this into a love triangle. Chaney is mesmerizing as the tormented lover, with his co-star, a little known actress whose performance garnered her much attention -- Joan Crawford. This gorgeous French grande features artwork by Chenal. Restoration has addressed very small chips in the folds. Touchup has been applied to the folds and pinholes in the corners. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
