Where East Is East 1929
The story dramatizes the attempts of Tiger Haynes (Chaney) -- a wild animal catcher in Southeast Asia -- to protect his beautiful daughter Toyo (Lupe Velez). Tiger is skeptical of Toyo's American suitor, Bobby (Lloyd Hughes), until the lad bravely saves Toyo from an escaped jungle cat. Before the young lovers are wed, Bobby is seduced by the exotic Madame de Sylva (Estelle Taylor), a sultry prostitute who, it turns out, is Toyo's mother and Tiger's estranged wife. Tiger warns her away from the boy but she responds by visiting the Haynes household, where she again entices Bobby away from his betrothed. Toyo is distraught when she learns that Bobby has fallen victim to the seductress, but Tiger turns the tables by uncaging a gorilla that Madame de Sylva had abused in the past. However, the release of the beast and Tiger's hatred of his ex-wife have unexpected consequences.
