Critic Reviews for Dragon Seed
Quite moving, strong drama featuring Kate Hepburn.
One of MGM's worst melodramas of the 40s and a low point in the career of Hepburn, here miscast as a young and alert Chinese woman. Propaganda picture was made to please the government (and its Chinese allies) but by today's standards it's racist.
