Anna May Wong – First Chinese American Actress

Was watching “Thief of Bagdad” as I worked from home today. Great to have silent films on in the background, less distracting. I was intrigued by the movie, and stumbled upon admiring one of the Mongol slave girls (acting ability haha). This is 1927, but its awfully spicy film – a must watch. Anna May Wong died in the 60’s but really paved the way during some racist times in the movie industry.
