Double treat...Anna May Wong and two strip technicolor film

The feature below, The Toll of the Sea [1922], is Anna May Wong's first film [age 15] and employed the two color technicolor process.

IMDb's Snow Leopard...

When young Lotus Flower sees an unconscious man floating in the water near the seashore, she quickly gets help for him. The man is Allen Carver, an American visiting China. Soon the two have fallen in love, and Carver promises to take her with him when he returns home. But Carver's friends discourage him from doing this, and he returns to the USA alone. By the time the two of them meet again, much has changed, and their reunion proves very trying for them both.

This is the restored version by the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
