    Maltin has not read much Lin Yutang or other old time Chinese-American writers has he? This is 1932 and a good movie and decent subject matter. The costumes are good and the sets look like what I saw as a child in Chinatown(San Francisco). It is worth at least 4 stars for its era. It is better than most movies made since 2000. I would watch this again and may buy it. Of course I like old movies and foreign movies.

    I was blown-away with the most famous Helen Hayes in this early film (1934) depicting the lives of Chinese women in San Francisco. Lewis Stone does a good job of playing her father. His character gets himself indebted to unscrupulous adult gang members who are fleecing money from immigrants who have established themselves in San Francisco but also want to help internal war efforts in their homeland. Stone gives everything away to help the prince, but the money is really in the hands of thieves. So without a son he must sacrifice his daughter to the highest bidder to survive and give the money, as promised, to help the Chinese prince.Hayes, in love with a young man, must turn his offer of marriage down and accept the hand of the highest bidder so her old father will not starve and the money will be sent to the prince, as promised. She makes me believe that she is Chinese. Very well done movie.
