WEST OF ZANZIBAR (Tod Browning, 1928)
9:15 PM
Directed by Tod Browning (USA, 1928)
Cast: Lon Chaney, Lionel Barrymore, Mary Nolan, Warner Baxter

Like THE UNKNOWN (2008's Directors Pick), WEST OF ZANZIBAR is an inspired partnership between director Tod Browning and actor Lon Chaney. Chaney has never been more affecting than in this fever-pitched nightmare of betrayal and revenge. Moving from the vaudeville stage to the jungles of the Congo, WEST OF ZANZIBAR tells its story of darkness and redemption with great skill and beauty, investing each of its desperate characters with depth and humanity.

35mm Print from Warner Bros. Approximately 65 minutes.

Dennis James will accompany on the Mighty Wurlitzer.

Co-presented by MiDNiTES for MANiACS.
