    Unholy Three, The (MGM, 1930). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Lon Chaney spoke onscreen for the one and only time in this his last film. Remade from the original 1925 Todd Browning version, Chaney reprises his role in the story told of three sideshow circus performers who escape their captivity and set up a crime syndicate using a pet store as their cover. Chaney plays Professor Echo, who transforms himself into Grandma O'Grady, a little innocent lady who sells talking parrots to the rich. Also featured is Harry Earle, remembered for his role as Hans in "Freaks", who reprises his role as the cigar chomping infant from the earlier version. Posters from any of the Chaney films are difficult to find and highly sought. This beautiful copy is one of only a few known to exist from this classic and is perhaps in the finest condition of all. Very Fine+ on Linen.
