SHADOWS (1922)

Shulberg. Adapted from Wilbur Daniel Steele’s story “Ching, Ching Chinaman”, this is the story of Yen Sin, a poor man who is washed ashore and ends up in a village of deeply-Christian fishing people. They call him “The Heathen,” and though he becomes a Christian in order to help a friend, he soon discovers and reveals their hypocrisy.

Remarkable performance and make-up by the master, Lon Chaney. Chaney at center with Marguerite De La Motte and Harrison Ford. Unbacked, unrestored, and unfolded, there are chips and edge wear limited to white border, mended neatly with archival paper on verso, actual image is miraculously clean, NEAR FINE.
