One of the first films using two tone color
7 February 2000 | by (new york city) – See all my reviews

This film has a bit of fame as one of the first films using the process of two tone color. I saw it at MOMA when they were showing a retrospective of the history of color in moving pictures. It was shown without any music and for a silent film this is usually death, but the film was utterly engrossing and terribly moving. I still think of it ten years after I've seen it and would LOVE to get my hands on a copy. Anna May Wong is poignant and fragile in the lead role in this adaptation of the Madame Butterfly story.
