Star of the Month: Sessue Hayakawa
TCM, beginning at 8pm
Catch a Classic!

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and as part of that celebration, Turner Classic Movies is recognizing famed Japanese actor Sessue Hayakawa as its Star of the Month.
Born Kintarō Hayakawa in Japan’s Chiba Prefecture in 1886, Hayakawa found himself in Hollywood after graduating from the University of Chicago. There, he embarked on what became a far more lucrative career than he likely would have had if he’d followed his parents’ desire that he become a banker. Under his professional name of Sessue Hayakawa, the broodingly handsome actor became one of the highest-paid stars of the silent era, often playing a forbidden lover. Many of his films were produced by Haworth Pictures Corporation, which Hayakawa established and was Hollywood’s first Asian-owned production company. This period marked the peak of his acting career, though he did continue his screen presence in the era of “talkies” with a good amount of success.
You’ll see Hayakawa films from both eras on TCM Mondays this month, starting with three silent titles this evening. The lineup begins with director Cecil B. DeMille’s The Cheat (1915), the film that made Hayakawa a star, and concludes with two Haworth productions: the romantic drama The Dragon Painter (1919) and the thriller The Tong Man (1919), making its TCM premiere.
