Summary
  • Restoration of "The dragon painter", full-length 1919 feature in which Hayakawa plays Tatsu, a wild youth living in the mountain forests of Japan, spending all his time painting. Although Tatsu creates beautiful art, local villagers believe that he is insane, as he claims that he has a beloved princess fiancée who has been turned into a dragon. When an renowned-but-aging artist hears of the young hermit's talent, Tatsu is brought to civilization with the hope that he will both become the student of the old artist and marry the elderly man's daughter to continue the family lineage and traditions
  • Restoration of "The wrath of the gods, or, the destruction of Sakura-Jima", Thomas Ince's full-length 1914 feature film as a restored tinted print featuring Hayakawa as the patriarch of a family carrying a curse
  • "Screen snapshots," a 1921 comedy short teaming Hayakawa with silver screen legend "Fatty" Arbuckle, as a pair of fresh army recruits and their drill seargent, played by Charles Murray
