Song. Die Liebe eines armen Menschenkindes
Anna May Wong stars as a vaudeville artist who finds that love cuts both ways…
Dir Richard Eichberg
With Anna May Wong, Heinrich George, Mary Kid
With live piano accompaniment
This superb melodrama, a British-German co-production, was designed to appeal to international markets. Set in a bustling Asian port, it centres on a vaudeville artist (Chinese-American star Anna May Wong) whose emotional attachment to a knife-thrower (Heinrich George) is complicated by the reappearance of his former mistress. A lavish treat, with scintillating dance numbers and mesmerising close-ups of Wong.
Live piano accompaniment by Stephen Horne (9 May) and Costas Fotopoulos (18 May).
