Life[change | change source]
Wong played the title character of Fu Manchu's vengeful daughter in Daughter of the Dragon (1931). Though she was given the starring role, this status was not reflected in her paycheck: she was paid $6,000, while the male lead Hayakawa got $10,000. Warner Oland, who was only in the film for 23 minutes, was paid $12,000.
