Where East Is East 1929

Gather round, folks, for another Chaney bedtime story something with a touch of Kipling and Poe. A very bad woman, the half-caste wife of a wild animal trapper, deserts her husband only to return later to steal the affections of the boy who loves her own daughter. Not nice at all, this woman, but Estelle Taylor plays her to perfection. Chaney is excellent and Lupe Velez lends fiery aid.
