One of the earliest color features in movie history, it's the film that made a star of Anna May Wong. Loosely based on the opera, Madam Butterfly, it stars Wong as Lotus Flower, a Chinese girl who engages in a troubled romance with an American man. Also starring Kenneth Harlan, Beatrice Bentley, Priscilla Moran, Etta Lee, and Ming Young. Screenplay by Frances Marion. Directed by Chester M. Franklin. This film is gorgeously restored to showcase this early color feature out of cinema history. (Color)
