Storyline

A young Englishman abroad, Michael, visits the local low-life spot of Tiger Bay to test his assertion that the spirit of human romance survives even in the most unpromising of circumstances. He intervenes when a local criminal protection racketeer targets a Chinese nightclub, and falls in love with the owner's young English foster-sister. But Olaf's gang have only just started their campaign against Lui Chang, the cultured, elegant woman who owns the premises... and she is determined not to be intimidated or driven out of business under any circumstances...

standout performance by Anna May Wong
12 January 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film is being shown as part of the "Quota Quickies" season at the NFT during this month.According to the programme notes the original script was set in Limehouse but was turned down by the BBFC.However with a few minor adjustments including transferring the setting to a South American country it became acceptable.It really is an odd concoction.There are a bunch of Cockney characters,eg Wally Patch conducting a protection racket a receptionist who to quote the notes is more like a "Blackpool landlady" and Wong,to name but a few.Wong is very well photographed and simply shines out from amongst the dross around her.If you get the chance it is certainly worth a viewing.
