Daughter of the Dragon (at Cinemapolis!)

A nervous looking man flanked by another man and a woman.

Presented in partnership with Cornell Cinema and Wharton Studio Museum as part of the "Celebrating Anna May Wong" series for Silent Movie Month in Ithaca.

Princess Ling Moy (Anna May Wong), a young and beautiful Chinese aristocrat, lives next door, unbeknownst to her, to Dr. Fu Manchu (Warner Oland), a brilliant but twisted genius who is out to rule the world. She is involved with Ah Kee (Sessue Hayakawa), a handsome young man, who also unbeknownst to her, is a secret agent out to thwart the heinous plots of Fu Manchu. As it turns out, Fu is not only her next-door neighbor, but (unbeknownst to her), her father. When she finds out, will she take her father's part and fight the men out to get Fu, or will she become a brave heroine and save the world even if it is from the devious doings of her own Dad?


This special screening will take place at Cinemapolis, 120 East Green Street, Ithaca, New York. Please visit their website for free tickets and additional information.
