Original Vintage Theatrical Window Card Movie Poster (measures 14" x 22") (Learn More)

Shadows, the 1922 Tom Forman silent Chinatown romantic religious blackmail melodrama (adapted from the "famous prize story 'Ching Ching Chinaman' by Wilbur Daniel Steele"; about a Chinese man who is shipwrecked and ends up in a deeply Christian town, and he is shunned, because he is a "heathen", so he converts to Christianity) starring Lon Chaney Sr. (playing a Chinese man, in heavy makeup), Marguerite De La Motte, Harrison Ford (not the same Harrison Ford that we know as an actor today, but a very popular leading man of the 1920s), John St. Polis, and Walter Long. Note that the advertising for this movie included the classic three monkeys with the "see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil", and they claim that this originated in the "Far East", where this was the symbol of "The Golden Rule".

Condition: very good to fine. One wishes every window card was in this condition (whether it is 80 years old or far newer)! There is tiny rounding to each of the four corners and there are a few extremely minor border defects including a clean 1/2" tear in the middle of the bottom border and clean 1/2" in the bottom of the left border, but mentioning such minor defects is the ultimate in nit-picking! The card basically has no defects at all, the colors are incredibly bright and vivid, it has a completely crisp feel, and there is not the slightest trace of any restoration (and there is not a pinhole or a piece of tape anywhere on the card)! I do not know of any other examples of this window card, but if there were one, there is no chance it could be in better condition!
