An Original Vintage Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh) (Learn More)

East is West, the 1922 Sidney Franklin silent China interracial romantic comedy ("She'd wink Till hearts Went on the blink And staid professors Couldn't think. And everywhere They'd stop to stare, And say 'Some Chink!' When Ming Toy winked."; "Me speak dignified American language... get me Steve?"; "8 Reels"; based on the 1918 play by John B. Hymer and Samuel Shipman which starred Fay Bainter) starring Constance Talmadge (in "yellowface" makeup "as Ming Toy"), Edmund Burns, Warner Oland, E. Alyn Warren, and Frank Lanning. Note that this movie was remade in 1930 with Lupe Velez in the title role! Note that, as was common in early Hollywood, non-Asian actors were hired to play Asians, and they did this through the use of "yellowface" makeup (similar to "blackface" makeup that had been used for so long). Often, this was in movies that featured "interracial romances" between Asians and westerners, and those who participated in such romances were shunned and often they led to murders or suicides. And often, there were Asian racial stereotypes in these movies, as there were with black performers in the movies they appeared in. Thankfully, these sorts of movies and the practice of actors performing in "yellowface" has almost completely been abandoned!
