THE DRAGON PAINTER (1919)
WITHOUT a single exception every reviewer who saw "The Dragon Painter" said it was close to perfection in artistic detail and production. Some said it was perfection itself. At least one critic said it was the best motion picture play she had ever seen.
If you are selecting pictures with a view to pleasing a discriminating audience and not merely filling in open dates, if you want a picture that will give reputation to your house and dollars to your box office, screen this one and you will book it.
The work of Sessue Hawakawa has carried him into the popular favor of audiences in approximately five thousand theatres in the United States. They have clamored to see him in something typifying the Oriental in the Occidental World. As the Prince in this great novel by E. Phillips Oppenheim he is part of a wonderful production of intrigue, mystery, romance and dramatic tension. Hayakawa is the one man to perfectly fit this part and his characterization of it makes the play one of extraordinary merit and of special appeal to Hayakawa followers.

In more than five thousand theatres his photoplays are an important feature.
