QUINCY ADAMS SAWYER (1922)
Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Lon Chaney, John Bowers, Blanche Sweet, Barbara La Marr, Elmo Lincoln, Louise Fazenda, dir: Clarence G. Badger; Metro Pictures. A wonderful cast of silent film greats joined the great Lon Chaney for this comedy drama based on a popular novel of the time. Chaney plays crooked lawyer Obadiah Strout, who has stolen bearer bonds. He puts all kinds of obstacles and crazy characters in the way of Quincy Adams Sawyer (John Bowers), who is attempting to solve the disappearance. Chaney proved himself greatly adept at playing both the menacing evil character and the comedy of the story. Today the film is not well remembered, but the participants are: Bowers would come to be remembered for his drowning suicide which became part of the script for A STAR IS BORN, Elmo Lincoln as film's first Tarzan, La Marr for her young death a few years later, and of course Chaney for his great body of work. The various characters (different on each one) are featured on the border art of the cards for this film. Town vamp Lindy Putnam (Barbara La Marr) puts the make on lawyer Quincy Adams Sawyer (John Bowers) in order to distract him from the trail of villainous Obadiah Strout (Lon Chaney). Bowers and Lamarr are present at the border edges in portraits which suggest their characterizations. FINE. Bookseller Inventory # 10163
