Toshia Morti

  1. Loretta Young, The Hatchet Man, 1931.   Although Japanese-born, Mori was seen for the Chinese-American Sun  Toya San being hunted by the titular Edward G Robinson. So, of course, his target became white, as well… like most of the thriller’s Asiatic characters. Being discarded, said Mori, was“the biggest disappointment of the first five years of my career”  – which (slightly)  improved, when she signed a  Columbia contract, resulting in The Bitter Tea of General Yan, and  Charlie Chan cases.
