AN ARABIAN NIGHT
starring Sessue Hayakawa and Jean Acker
This is an improvement over previous pictures starring Sessue Hayakawa because it gives the Japanese actor a real chance at character drawing. He is seen as a lying, likable Arab who is mistaken for the re-incarnated soul-mate of a rich American spinster. The melodrama is routine, but the humor has the flavor of the Oriental fairy stories.
