Vintage original 8 x 10” (20 x 25 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Lon Chaney, Owen Moore, Renee Adoree, dir: Tod Browning; Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The team of director Tod Browning and star Lon Chaney made for some of the silent era’s finest crime/horror melodramas. Browning also wrote this tale of two thieves who vie to outdo each other over the same girl they both love. Chaney played the dual role of a robber known as the Raven and the half paralyzed kindly Bishop. In this image, coded 249-29, we see Chaney as The Raven. There is minor light creasing at the top right corner. ABOUT FINE.
