Has anyone seen this great Anna May Wong film? It's a British silent (which must explain the bizarre billed Charles Laughton cameo...can someone explain to me why having Laugton play a grumpy customer would attract audiences? He's there for five minutes! At least he distracts us form Gilda Gray's horrible dancing) made at the end of the era. There's some great dramatic camera shots and editing. It's plot is on the meladramtic side, but it's all in good fun. Anna May completely steals the picture and rightly so. I wish more of her films were around to see (at least more that I can get access too).
