Chinatown Nights 1929

Here's a vivid melodrama that holds your interest completely and is made doubly exciting by Wallace Beery's splendid characterization. It deals with the white boss of Chinatown and a cultured lady with "an uptown head and a Barbary Coast body." Florence Vidor as this woman is badly miscast. When you see the film you won't need anybody to tell vou that it's the first time she has ever done a drunk scene.
