A print of this long lost film recently discovered in Argentina
6 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Onoto (Myrna Loy) is slated to be sold to a wealthy Mandarin, but is rescued from the auction block by white fugitive from justice Gregory Kent (John Miljan). Onoto falls in love with Kent, and he with her, but this is 1928, and marriage between races is still taboo. Gallantly, Onoto forsakes Kent so that he may marry his white sweetheart Nadine Howells (Leila Hyams), then sadly disappears into the night. Asian actress Anna May Wong, who by rights should have played the leading role, is consigned to a glorified bit part. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide. In a New York Times article published May 4, 2010, Larry Rohter reports, "In addition, the Museo del Cine (Buenos Aires) has discovered what the Library of Congress says are the only surviving copies of three American films: a 1916 William S. Hart western called "The Aryan"; a 1928 drama called "The Crimson City," with Myrna Loy and Anna May Wong; and a melodrama from 1921 called "The Gilded Lily" and starring Mae Murray."
