VINTAGE FILM POSTERS & MEMORABILIA. Original American Title Lobby Card. This ORIGINAL, title lobby card was designed and printed to promote the first theatrical release of the 1930 American, crime/drama feature, THE UNHOLY THREE.
The film is a remake of the Tod Browning 1925 silent feature. Both versions star Lon Chaney, the Man of 1000 Faces. In the early talkie version, Chaney is also the Man of Many Voices, as he provides five different voices: a parrot, an old woman, a girl, a ventriloquist, and the ventriloquist's dummy!This film was Chaney's first and last talkie, as he died at the age of 47, less than two month's after the film's release. The film stars Lon Chaney as Professor Echo, with Lila Lee, Elliott Nugent, Harry Earles, and John Miljan. It was directed by Jack Conway. Lon Chaney and Harry Earles both reprised their roles from the silent film, in the talkie version of THE UNHOLY THREE. The lobby card is an ORIGINAL movie poster. It is NOT a reprint, reproduction, re-issue, or commercial item available to the general public. It was created to be displayed in the movie theatre lobby to publicize the film.
CHECK OUT MY MANY other items. All JPEGS of the complete lobby cards are TWO SCANS , that have been manually joined. Occasionally, the union is less than seamless. Sometimes the scan causes a color fluctuation which is not present on the actual lobby card.Please be assured that the cards are as described in the listing description. Lobby Card; Approximately 11" X 14". Lon Chaney; Lila Lee; Elliott Nugent; Harry Earles; John Miljan. The lobby card is ORIGINAL.
The lobby card is in outstanding condition. There is slight discoloring in the left side border. There are no other tears, fading, stains, smudges, missing paper, folds, or pin holes. The reverse side is clean and unmarked.
The colors are richer and brighter, than the scanned image suggests. I can't imagine finding a better condition card!
