Overview

A crook melodrama whose working title "Lady Raffles" basically told the story, White Tiger was director Tod Browning's last film under his contract with Universal and his final collaboration with the studio's leading lady, Priscilla Dean. Dean played Sylvia, a lady crook, and her two accomplices, Roy (Raymond Griffith) and Count Donelli (Wallace Beery), arrive in America to con the rubes with their mechanical chess player. Sylvia, however, falls for one of the intended victims, Dick Longworth (Matt Moore), a handsome detective. Learning that Roy is actually her brother and Count Donelli, alias Bill Hawkes, is the villain who murdered their father (Alfred Allen), Sylvia resolves to reform and marry Longworth. Browning, who had already earned a reputation for delivering offbeat suspense, drew a blank this time around. Filmed in and around Coney Island, NY, in the summer of 1922, White Tiger languished on a shelf for nearly a year before being released to predominantly negative reviews. White Tiger, the trade paper Moving Picture World complained, "is vague in purpose and passive in mood." Priscilla Dean, who had blossomed under Browning's direction in such blockbuster fare as The Virgin of Stamboul (1920) and Under Two Flags (1922), saw her career decline following the release of White Tiger.
