DAUGHTER OF THE DRAGON

1931 / 70min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: LLOYD CORRIGAN

CAST: ANNA MAY WONG, WARNER OLAND, SESSUE HAYAKAWA

Envying Wong’s grand success abroad, Paramount set out to lure the wayward star back to Hollywood, preparing Sax Rohmer’s best-seller Daughter of Fu Manchu as a homecoming vehicle. Wong has the title part, Princess Ling Moy, a sinister force at large in London who’s every bit as wicked as her famous father (Warner Oland). Much “Yellow Peril” wickedness ensues, but it can’t damper the charisma of Wong and costar Sessue Hayakawa, playing the secret agent determined to bring her down.

Daughter of the Dragon is screening as part of the series Ann May Wong: Empress of Chinatown. Click here for more info.
