racechanging: Mr Wu

Mr Wu

Mr Wu is a strict authoritarian but a doting father to his beautiful daughter Nang Ping (Renée Adorée). In accordance with tradition he arranges Nang Ping’s marriage – to a man she does not even know – but she falls in love with a dashing British visitor to China.

Tragedy ensues.

There had been a previous version with Meggie Albanesi (1919) and it was remade with Angelita Benítez as Wu Li Chang (1930).

The makeup

I have no information on the makeup credits for this movie.
