THE TONG MAN
1919, 58 min, USA, Dir: William Worthington

Japanese-American Sessue Hayakawa produced and starred in this unusually violent silent film about smuggling and the Chinese mafia, featuring realistic gun and knife fights and even a hatchet to the face! Hawakaya's extraordinary presence dominates the screen. Almost 40 years later, the actor received an Oscar nomination for his role in David Lean's BRIDGE OVER THE RIVER KWAI.
