[Los Angeles: 1934] Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin photo. Fine.
Often cast in stereotyped roles, Anna May Wong — the first Chinese American movie star — found finer acting opportunities in England. She was obliged to return to Hollywood to accept contractual work and did so to work with George Raft in Limehouse Blues. She was, as the original typed blurb on the photo verso conveys, greatly esteemed for her influential dress and sophistication. In the film she played the star of a cabaret in London’s seedy Chinatown.
