THE UNHOLY THREE. New York: A. L. Burt Company Publishers, . Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-282 [283-288: ads], original red cloth, spine panel stamped in black. Photoplay edition. Photoplay edition with four stills from the 1930 Metro-Goldwyn Mayer film "The Unholy Three," directed by Jack Conway, starring Lon Chaney, which was based on this macabre mystery novel about three criminous circus misfits, also known as "The Terrible Three" and THE THREE FREAKS. This was Chaney's last film and only talking picture, a remake of Tod Browning's 1925 silent film in which Chaney also starred. See Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-166. Bleiler (1948), p. 236. Hubin (1994), p. 686. Touch of wear to spine ends and corners, a nearly fine copy in very good dust jacket (with photograph of Chaney and costars on front panel) with professional restoration to spine ends and corners, dust soiling to spine and rear panels. The orange spine lettering is completely faded, but otherwise this is a very nice example of the jacket. (#147536).
