Description

    While the City Sleeps (MGM, 1928). Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"). From the Leonard and Alice Maltin Collection.
    When he wasn't laboring under heavy makeup, Lon Chaney was usually playing a tough guy of one sort or another. In this melodrama, Chaney plays a gritty law man who helps a girl escape a gangster who wants her killed because she knows too much. This film is one of the earliest of the gangster films which, in the next decade, would become a staple at the Warner Brothers lot with the likes of Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney. In very presentable condition, these lobby cards feature bold, bright color and Chaney looking every bit the hard boiled cop. One card has a tack hole in the border, and one has a chip in the bottom left and top right corner. From the Leonard and Alice Maltin. Collection. Fine+.
