Overview

Star Lon Chaney Sr. and director Tod Browning bade adieu to the silent-movie era with 1929's Where East is East. His face covered with hideous scars convincingly applied with nonflexible collodion, Chaney is cast as weather-beaten animal trapper Tiger Haynes, at present living and working in Indochina. Haynes' loving relationship with his nubile half-caste daughter Toyo Lupe Velez is threatened by the return of Toyo's scheming mother, Madame Da Sylva Estelle Taylor. Still harboring a grudge against Tiger, the Madame decides to get even by stealing Toyo's sweetheart Bobby Lloyd Hughes away from her. The villainess also intends to destroy Haynes by turning his animal "pets" against him. But the Madame is herself destroyed by Haynes' loyal gorilla, who in a gruesome but largely unseen finale tears the viperish woman apart. A typically morbid entry in the Chaney-Browning series, Where East is East may elicit more laughs than chills when seen today.
