AMERICAN HOME VIDEO: None.

REASON FOR DISAPPEARANCE: Perceived lack of interest in a film that was never considered to be a classic, despite its unusually progressive storyline.

CHANCES OF SEEING A HOME VIDEO/DVD RELEASE: Possible, given the renewed interest in Anna May Wong’s life and career.

BOOTLEG OPPORTUNITIES: Available from several collector-to-collector sources, though the quality of the video is mediocre.
