FLAME OF LOVE, THE (1930) Anna May Wong
FLAME OF LOVE, THE (1930) Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) double weight silver gelatin photo, UK. A minor thumbtack hole to bottom right edge has been carefully conserved, NEAR FINE. Anna May Wong, George Schnell, dir: Richard Eichberg; British International.
A British-Berman coproduction done in the early days of talking films, with a story set in Imperial Russia. Wong, for whom this was her first talking film, had a brief flurry of starring roles during this period of transition to sound, of which this is a very scarce example.
