An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Movie Window Card (WC; measures 13 1/2" x 22" [34 x 56 cm]) (Learn More)

Laugh, Clown, Laugh, the 1928 Herbert Brenon silent romantic love triangle circus doomed romantic melodrama ("From the play by David Belasco and Tom Cushing"; Chaney is a circus clown who adopts an orphan girl, and when she grows up, he falls in love with her, but he is 30 years older than her, and she finds someone she likes better, and he basically commits suicide doing an impossible circus stunt) starring Lon Chaney Sr., Bernard Siegel, Loretta Young (in her first real role; she was just 15 years-old at the time, and had had bit parts for 10 years previous as a child actress!), Cissy Fitzgerald, Nils Asther, and Gwen Lee. This sounds like it should be a Tod Browning movie, with its extremely creepy plot, and a real life 15 year-old playing love scenes with a man older than her father, but it is not (it is based on a play by celebrated authors David Belasco and Tom Cushing)!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that we have only previously auctioned one example of this window card, and that was 11 years ago, when it sold for $1,450!

Condition: good to very good. The card was slightly trimmed on the left and right, very slightly affecting the red background on the left side and slightly affecting the right edge of the image and the end of the "H" of "LAUGH". There are also some scuffs scattered in the card. Other than the above, the card is in nice condition, and it has had no restoration.
