An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36" [36 x 91 cm]) (Learn More)

Cheating Cheaters, the 1927 Edward Laemmle silent romantic crime comedy ("Max Marcin's Stage Success"'; a clever comedy about two families of crooks who pose as wealth people and move next door to wealthy families, intending to rob them; but then by chance they move in next to each other, and both try to rob the other family!) starring Kenneth Harlan, Betty Compson, Eddie Gribbon, Cesare Gravina, Lucien Litlefield, E.J. Ratcliffe, Sylvia Ashton, Erwin Connelly, and Maude Turner Gordon. Note that director Edward Laemmle has been largely forgotten by film history, but he has a VERY interesting biography! He is the nephew of Carl Laemmle, who persuaded him to leave his electrical engineering career in 1915 and join him at his recently opened Universal Studios. He started as an assistant director, mainly under John Ford. In 1917, he went to New Guinea to produce a movie about the natives there, and was shipwrecked, and spent two years among the Kia Kia cannibals! This adventure was re-created in the movie "Shipwrecked Among Cannibals", which became the first million dollar movie for Universal Studios. Edward Laemmle went on to direct roughly 50 movies, and had many famous assistants, including William Wyler!
