Anna May Wong and Louise Lorraine in this film about Chinatown bus tour guide Charlie who finds that one of his lady riders (Lorraine) is pursued by a Tong gang because she has a supposedly magic ring. They kidnap her and she’s brought to a mysterious Mandarin’s mansion, where Charlie goes to rescue her.
Wong was only seventh-billed in this film, and photos like this of her from it would accordingly be especially difficult to find. Coded BH8-97.
