Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Chinese-American film favorite Anna May Wong stars in the British meller Wasted Love. The fragile-looking Wong plays a "beach waif" who becomes the romantic bone of contention between two roughnecks. Both men battle over the honor of bedding the reluctant heroine, but in the end she is rescued by a slightly more virtuous third party. A bit too raw for American tastes, Wasted Love was severely trimmed before its U.S. premiere. A silent film, it was fitted out with a synchronized musical track, which was marginally more subtle than the blood-and-thunder storyline.
