Anna May Wong and Sessue Hayakawa in Daughter of the Dragon (1931)

It’s no secret that Hollywood simply did not (or could not) feature non-Caucasian actors in anything but stereotypical roles during the Golden Age. […] Daughter of the Dragon (1931) is a strange hybrid of Caucasians playing Asians and genuine Asian actors. It features the worst of Hollywood stereotypes but it also featured the beautiful and talented Anna May Wong. […] Although Anna May and Hayakawa acted together earlier in her career, Daughter of the Dragon marked the first film featuring two major Asian stars. - Lorraine LoBianco, Turner Classic Movies
