An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Window Card (Learn More)

Tod Browning's West of Zanzibar, the 1928 Tod Browning Africa family relationship revenge melodrama (even for Tod Browning, this movie is exceptionally bizarre, with stage magician Chaney having his wife stolen, and crippled in the process; he continues as a performer, dragging his useless legs behind him, and he goes to Africa to get revenge, and ends up with the 18 year old daughter of his rival, and the movie must be seen to be believed) starring Lon Chaney Sr., Lionel Barrymore, Warner Baxter, Tiny Ward, and Mary Nolan. Note that the film originally contained a sequence where Lon Chaney disguises himself as a "half-man/half-duck" in a sideshow sequence. There were test shots done of him in the amazing makeup for this scene, and it is not certain if it was ever filmed, and it was definitely not in the final print of the movie. But director Tod Browning loved the idea, and resurrected it after Chaney's death in his equally bizarre 1933 movie "Freaks", at the movie's climax, with the female star! Also note that star Mary Nolan was a former Ziegfeld girl who was then known as "Bubbles Wilson", but she had a very troubled life, filled with scandal, and she retired from movies in 1932, and was later a drug addict, and died in 1948 at the age of 43, completely forgotten. Also note that Warner Baxter was born in 1889, and in the early 1920s he rose to prominence in silent movies, becoming a major star of the 1920s, while he was in his 30s. He won the Oscar for Best Actor as The Cisco Kid in "In Old Arizona" in 1929, and he remained a top star throughout the 1930s!
