ANNA MAY WONG as KEOK | THE ALASKAN (1924) Photo
[Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1924] Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo. There are a few abrasions at the top left corner and wear along the right side and there is a hole at the bottom left corner next to the logo. There are some brown tape remnants on the verso. This appears to be a contact print and includes a Paramount logo at bottom left corner and the code 655-56 at the bottom right corner. Very good+.
America’s first Asian American female movie star. The epic tale, filmed in Alberta, Canada, was from a book by popular writer James Oliver Curwood.
Because of her unconventional look, Wong was cast as several ethnicities during her early career, including the Eskimo Keok in this story.
