Cinema Poster Art

Swedish film posters.

Always love vintage film posters! Was especially drawn to "Halvblod" which is originally titled "Where East is East". This 1929 film is where Tod Browning left the silents. And, you thought it was most notable for having Wong Wing as the character Ming!

Wong Wing was Ming, I forgot about that! I also forgot to identify the Norma Shearer poster as the film Riptide, and the Ken Maynard poster as the film Sons of the Saddle.

I love the Norma Shearer and the Lupe Yelez posters! The Yelez poster is especially striking.

They're my two favorites of the bunch too. The Halvblod/Where East Is East poster is pretty impressive. It's interesting that Lon Chaney isnt featured anywhere on the poster, and his name is listed at the below Lupe and Estelle's name.
