The Dragon Painter DVD
SKU ID #327844
Art, fantasy, and romance blend together for a classic of Asian-American cinema, “The Dragon Painter” (1919). Academy Award-nominated heartthrob Sessue Hayakawa stars as an offbeat artist who lives in a world of make-believe, imagining himself to be the prospective groom of a princess kidnapped by dragons. When one of the country’s foremost painters takes on the talented daydreamer as a student, a troublesome affair blossoms between the young artist and his master’s daughter. Originally thought lost, a rare print of this film was discovered in Paris, providing the source for this outstanding restoration.
