East is West (1922) in Culpepper, VA

The rarely screened silent version of East is West starring Constance Talmadge and Warner Oland will be screened on Friday, January 13 at 7:30pm at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater.

From the LOC A/V website:

EAST IS WEST (Associated First National, 1922)

Silent film comedienne Constance Talmadge stars as Chinese maiden Ming Toy who is about to be sold into slavery when she's rescued by handsome young American Billy Benson. Ming lands in San Francisco, where Charlie Yong, the ruthless king of Chinatown (Warner Oland) attempts to kidnap her and it’s Billy to the rescue again. Talmadge’s frequent director Sidney Franklin helmed this comedy based on a hit Broadway play that was adapted by screenwriter Frances Marion. The Nederlands Filmmuseum (EYE) undertook a multi-year restoration of “East is West” when a nitrate print was discovered in 2005. It will be introduced by the Institute’s silent film curator, Elif Rongen-Kaynakci and live musical accompaniment will be provided by Bernie Anderson. Short subjects TBA.

Black & White, 80 minutes
