Anna May Wong is one of the most influential and important early silent film actresses of all time and she is recognized as a pioneer in the industry. When this photograph was taken in 1924, she was just playing bit parts and this photograph from this film really set her career in motion. This was a time in Hollywood where a Chinese actress could not be the star, but she stole the show in almost ever film she appeared in... and it all started right here. The offered photograph is the only image of Anna May Wong from the "Thief of Bagdad" and it presents beautifully! An important piece of Hollywood history that is being offered here for the first time ever!
