U.S. Premiere of EYE Institute’s New Restoration of
EAST IS WEST at Cinecon 50

Cinecon strives to bring film fans the opportunity to see the latest film restorations from archives and Hollywood studios, and we are especially pleased this year to be able to present the Constance Talmadge film East Is West for the first time on any American screen since its 1922 release.

Recently restored by the EYE Institute of the Netherlands, East Is West is based on a play written by Samuel Shipman and John B. Hymer, which opened Christmas day 1918 in Manhattan’s Astor Theater, and by the standards of the day was a tremendous hit, running for nearly two years, and racking up 680 performances. The play starred future movie character actress Fay Bainter in the role of Ming Toy.

Brought to the screen by producer Joseph M. Schenck and director Sidney Franklin as a vehicle for the delightful Constance Talmadge with a scenario by screenwriter Frances Marion and photography by Tony Gaudio, East Is West has been one of the most sought-after Constance Talmadge films, and this new EYE Institute restoration brings it back to the screen. For a preview visit:

We hope you’ll join us at CINECON 50, Labor Day weekend, August 28th to September 1st 2014, in Hollywood.
