Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Flame of Love is the English-language version of the German melodrama Hay Tang. Anna May Wong repeats her role as Hai Tang, a Chinese girl in love with dashing Russian officer Lt. Boris (John Longden). Trouble arises when Boris's commanding officer, the Grand Duke (George Schnell), also develops a yen for the heroine. Hay Tang's brother Wang Hu (J. Leyon) resents the Duke's advances toward his sister and shoots the rapacious aristocrat. To save her brother from execution, Hay Tang promises to remain as the Grand Duke's mistress, forever dashing her hopes for happiness with Boris. Hay Tang was also filmed in a French version, again with Anna May Wong.
