The clash of East and West, of tolerance and bigotry, of man and woman play out in this vivid early Talkie. Richard Barthelmess portrays Sam Lee, a Chinese-American who, stung by racial slurs, leaves his wealthy fathers New York home to make his own wayin Europe. There he falls for a beauty (Constance Bennett) who proves beauty is only skin deep when she discovers Sams heritage and vents her fury in a shocking, not-to-be-missed scene of pure racial hatred. A bold look at intolerance that helped secureWarner Bros. studios reputation for social-conscience filmmaking, Son of the Gods was also a reprise of sorts for Barthelmess: He played a Chinese opposite Lillian Gish in D.W. Griffiths famed Broken Blossoms. **Pleasebe aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
