The Wrath
of the Gods

(1914)

 

Sessue Hayakawa became something of a Hollywood movie idol with his starring appearance in this proto-disaster film produced by Thomas H. Ince, with Tsuru Aoki, future director Frank Borzage, and an erupting volcano in support.

The film has been restored by the George Eastman Museum film archive.
