(Reginald Barker, US 1914, 56 min.)
Silent Tuesdays. Japanese star Sessue Hayakawa, his wife Tsuru Aoki, and future director Frank Borzage (Seventh Heaven, The Mortal Storm) star in a story of cultural conflict culminating in a spectacularly staged natural disaster. Long considered one of the great early American feature films, director Reginald Barker’s imagery and special effects supervisor Raymond. B. West’s technical wizardry still impress as much today as they did 90 years ago.
