Japanese actor Sojin delivers yet another villainous characterization in the cheaply produced melodrama China Slaver. The star is cast as "The Corba," the ruler of a lawless island where narcotics-smuggling and white slavery are the principal commodities. The Corba is ultimately foiled by one of his own countrymen, a seemingly harmless Chinese ship's steward. The latter character was somewhat ludicrously played by Alberto Valentino, brother of the late Rudolph Valentino. A hokey, hackneyed effort, China Slaver was designed for one-day-only play in the various "scratch houses" throughout the U.S.
